1. Deploy the enphase-collector helm chart on AWS EKS


    To deploy the enphase-collector Helm chart on an AWS Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) cluster using Pulumi, you need to perform a few steps:

    1. Set up an EKS cluster.
    2. Install the Helm chart on the cluster.

    I will guide you through this process step by step and provide a Pulumi TypeScript program to accomplish this.

    Step 1: Setting Up an EKS Cluster

    This involves creating an EKS cluster, which requires defining certain resources. For simplicity, we will use the eks.Cluster resource from the Pulumi EKS package. This is a high-level component that simplifies creating and managing an EKS cluster.

    You will need to provide a name for the EKS cluster, select a VPC (or have the EKS module define a new one), and specify other configurations like the size of the cluster, and the IAM roles.

    Step 2: Installing the Helm Chart

    After setting up the EKS cluster, you can deploy Helm charts to your cluster using the Chart resource from the Pulumi Kubernetes provider. With this resource, you specify the chart you want to deploy (in this case, enphase-collector), along with any values you want to override.

    Below is the Pulumi TypeScript program, detailing how to create an EKS cluster and deploying the enphase-collector Helm chart:

    import * as eks from '@pulumi/eks'; import * as k8s from '@pulumi/kubernetes'; // Create an EKS cluster. const cluster = new eks.Cluster('my-cluster', { // Specify the desired settings here desiredCapacity: 2, minSize: 1, maxSize: 2, storageClasses: "gp2", deployDashboard: false, }); // Create a Kubernetes provider instance that uses our EKS cluster. const provider = new k8s.Provider('k8s-provider', { kubeconfig: cluster.kubeconfig.apply(JSON.stringify), }); // Now we can deploy the enphase-collector Helm chart to our cluster. const enphaseCollectorChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart('enphase-collector', { chart: 'enphase-collector', fetchOpts: { // Replace with the actual repository if it's hosted on a Helm repo. repo: 'http://<chart-repository-url>/', }, // You can specify the namespace and any chart values here namespace: 'default', }, { provider }); // Export the cluster's kubeconfig and the service's endpoint. export const kubeconfig = cluster.kubeconfig; export const enphaseCollectorEndpoint = enphaseCollectorChart.getResourceProperty('v1/Service', 'enphase-collector', 'status').apply(status => status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].hostname);


    • The eks.Cluster resource class is used to create EKS clusters in a very abstracted way. It includes default configurations that set up the VPC and subnets unless specified otherwise.
    • A k8s.Provider is instantiated to interact with our newly created EKS cluster. It uses the kubeconfig of our EKS cluster as an input.
    • The enphase-collector Helm chart is deployed using the Chart resource. Make sure to replace http://<chart-repository-url>/ with the actual URL where the chart is stored.

    The program exports the kubeconfig of the EKS cluster and an endpoint to access the enphase-collector service. You can use this kubeconfig to interact with your Kubernetes cluster via kubectl or other Kubernetes tools.

    Make sure to have Pulumi installed and configured to communicate with your AWS account. Also, ensure you have kubectl installed on your machine to interact with the cluster. You should also have a Helm chart repository where the enphase-collector chart is stored, and replace the placeholder URL with the actual URL to your repository.

    Please replace all placeholders with the actual values you intend to use before running this Pulumi program. This program will create resources on AWS and might incur charges, so it's important to clean up these resources when you no longer need them to avoid unnecessary costs. To do this, you can run pulumi destroy from your command line.
