1. Deploy the infinispan helm chart on Kubernetes


    To deploy the Infinispan Helm Chart on Kubernetes using Pulumi, you will utilize the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart resource. This resource allows you to deploy applications on Kubernetes clusters using Helm Charts.

    Let's break down the steps:

    1. Import Necessary Libraries: Begin by importing the required Pulumi library for managing Kubernetes resources.
    2. Chart Configuration: Define the chart, version, and any values that you would like to customize for the Infinispan deployment.
    3. Instantiate Chart: Next, create an instance of Chart with the specified configuration.

    Here's a TypeScript program that performs this deployment:

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Step 1: Define the chart. const infinispanChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("infinispan", { // Chart attributes chart: "infinispan", version: "x.x.x", // specify the exact chart version fetchOpts: { repo: "https://infinispan.org/charts/", // official Infinispan Helm chart repository URL }, // Values to be overwritten in the default Infinispan Helm chart. // Specify any custom values that are necessary for your environment. values: { // Custom values for the chart // For example, to customize the memory and CPU resource limits and requests: // cacheContainer: { // extraJvmOpts: "-Xmx1024m -Xms1024m", // }, // For detailed configuration options specific to infinispan, consult the chart's values.yaml file // or the official Infinispan Helm chart documentation. }, }); // Step 2: Export any important information, such as service endpoints. // For helm charts, you may need to look at the chart to find the right service names and ports. export const infinispanUrl = infinispanChart.getResourceProperty("v1/Service", "infinispan", "status");

    Make sure to replace x.x.x with the correct version of the Infinispan Helm chart.


    • The k8s.helm.v3.Chart resource provisions the specified Helm chart into your Kubernetes cluster. In this code block, it's used to deploy Infinispan to the cluster.
    • The fetchOpts attribute is where you specify the repository of the Helm chart. The repository URL should point to where the Infinispan chart is hosted.
    • The values attribute is used if you need to override default values from the Infinispan chart – for example, setting specific configurations like memory limits or enabling/disabling certain features. This should align with the available properties in the helm chart's values.yaml file.
    • The infinispanUrl export line is an example of how you can expose the Infinispan service endpoint after deployment. The exact properties you need to extract may vary based on the service configuration and what you want to accomplish with the deployment.

    To apply this program, you'll need to have Pulumi and kubectl installed and configured for the desired Kubernetes cluster. Save this code into a .ts file, and then you can deploy it using the Pulumi command-line tools. Remember, the code assumes that the Helm chart for Infinispan is accessible from the specified repository.

    For more details and additional information, you can refer to the official Pulumi Kubernetes Helm Chart documentation.
