1. Deploy the redis-ui helm chart on AWS EKS


    To deploy the redis-ui Helm chart on an AWS Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) cluster using Pulumi, here's what we need to do:

    1. Create an EKS cluster: This serves as the environment where your Kubernetes resources will run.
    2. Install the Helm chart on the EKS cluster: We'll use Pulumi's Kubernetes provider to deploy the redis-ui Helm chart.

    We're leveraging the awsx and eks packages to create the EKS cluster easily and the kubernetes package to deploy the Helm chart.

    Below is the step-by-step Pulumi program written in TypeScript:

    import * as awsx from '@pulumi/awsx'; import * as eks from '@pulumi/eks'; import * as k8s from '@pulumi/kubernetes'; // Step 1: Create an EKS cluster const cluster = new eks.Cluster('my-eks-cluster', { instanceType: "t2.medium", desiredCapacity: 2, minSize: 1, maxSize: 2, storageClasses: "gp2", // default storage class deployDashboard: false, /* optional, recommended to be false for security */ }); // Export the cluster's kubeconfig. export const kubeconfig = cluster.kubeconfig; // Step 2: Install the redis-ui Helm chart on the EKS cluster // First, we need a provider that uses the kubeconfig from our new EKS cluster const provider = new k8s.Provider('eks-k8s', { kubeconfig: cluster.kubeconfig.apply(JSON.stringify), }); // Now we can use this provider to install the Helm chart into the cluster. const redisUiChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart('redis-ui', { chart: 'redis-ui', version: 'x.y.z', // replace with the desired chart version fetchOpts: { repo: 'http://charts.example.com/', // replace with the Helm chart repository }, }, { provider }); // Export the Redis UI service endpoint export const redisUiEndpoint = redisUiChart.getResourceProperty('v1/Service', 'redis-ui-redis-ui', 'status') .apply(status => status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].ip);


    • We create a new EKS cluster named my-eks-cluster. You can customize instance types and autoscaling parameters as per your requirements.
    • The kubeconfig for the cluster is exported so you can interact with the cluster using kubectl or other tools.
    • A new Pulumi Kubernetes provider is created to interact with the EKS cluster.
    • We then declare a Helm chart resource named redis-ui. You would replace 'x.y.z' with the specific version of the Redis UI Helm chart you wish to install and 'http://charts.example.com/' with the actual Helm chart repository URL.
    • Finally, we export the endpoint of the Redis UI service. This implies the service type is LoadBalancer and will provision an external IP.

    Important Notes:

    • Be sure to replace 'x.y.z' and 'http://charts.example.com/' in the Chart resource with actual values.
    • Depending on how the redis-ui service is configured in the Helm chart, you may need to adjust the redisUiEndpoint export to match the correct properties.
    • Adjust desiredCapacity, minSize, and maxSize to handle your workload appropriately.
    • Set deployDashboard according to your security practices; it's generally discouraged to enable it due to its broad permissions.
    • Helm charts have dependencies on certain storage classes, such as gp2. Ensure you have the storage classes configured as required by the redis-ui chart.
    • Review and modify security groups or access roles as needed for your specific environment and security requirements.

    Once you apply this Pulumi program, the AWS EKS cluster will be created, and the Redis UI Helm chart will be installed on the cluster. You'll be able to interact with the EKS cluster using the outputted kubeconfig and access the Redis UI at the redisUiEndpoint.
