1. Deploy the boundary-softsci helm chart on AWS EKS


    To deploy the boundary-softsci Helm chart on AWS Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS), we will need to perform several steps. I'll walk you through setting up an EKS cluster, deploying the Helm chart, and providing you with the Pulumi TypeScript program to do so.

    Setting up an EKS Cluster

    First, we need to create an EKS cluster. EKS is a managed Kubernetes service by AWS that takes away some of the complexities of running a Kubernetes cluster. Given that we'll be using the Pulumi EKS package, this process can be heavily abstracted.

    Installing the Helm Chart

    Once we have our EKS cluster, we will install Helm charts. Helm is a package manager for Kubernetes that allows us to install applications (defined as charts) onto our Kubernetes cluster.

    Resources Used

    • eks.Cluster: Pulumi's high-level abstraction that creates and manages an EKS cluster.
    • kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart: The Helm Chart resource used to deploy Helm charts to a Kubernetes cluster.

    Below is the detailed Pulumi TypeScript program that sets up an EKS cluster and deploys the boundary-softsci Helm chart onto it.

    import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; import * as aws from "@pulumi/aws"; import * as eks from "@pulumi/eks"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Create an EKS cluster with the default configuration. const cluster = new eks.Cluster("my-cluster", {}); // Export the cluster's kubeconfig. export const kubeconfig = cluster.kubeconfig; // Create a k8s provider using the kubeconfig from the EKS cluster. const provider = new k8s.Provider("provider", { kubeconfig: cluster.kubeconfig.apply(JSON.stringify), }); // Deploy the boundary-softsci Helm chart into the EKS cluster. const chart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("boundary-softsci", { chart: "boundary-softsci", version: "0.1.0", // replace with the desired chart version fetchOpts: { repo: "https://helm.example.com/", // replace with the repository URL hosting the boundary-softsci chart }, }, { provider }); // The following Pulumi program assumes that the Helm chart `boundary-softsci` // is available in the provided repository. Make sure to replace the `version` // and `repo` values with the correct ones for the actual boundary-softsci Helm // chart. Additionally, you might need to pass custom `values` to the Helm Chart // resource to configure the boundary-softsci application according to your needs.

    This is a high-level overview with a basic program. You'll need to replace the version and repo with the actual values where the boundary-softsci Helm chart is hosted. Also, depending on your specific requirements, you may need to configure additional properties and resources.

    Once you have this program, you can run it using the Pulumi CLI to set up your infrastructure:

    1. Save the TypeScript code into a file, for instance, index.ts.
    2. Run pulumi up in the terminal in the directory of your Pulumi project.

    Pulumi will then perform the necessary actions to create the EKS cluster and deploy the boundary-softsci Helm chart onto your new cluster.
