1. Deploy the tailscale-subnet-router helm chart on AWS EKS


    To deploy the tailscale-subnet-router Helm chart on AWS EKS using Pulumi, you use a variety of resources. First, an EKS cluster has to be provisioned. You can do this by using the eks.Cluster class from Pulumi's EKS package. This class simplifies creating and managing an EKS Kubernetes cluster.

    Once the cluster is up, you deploy Helm charts by creating an instance of the Chart class from the @pulumi/kubernetes package. This class acts as a representation of a Helm chart in the Pulumi program.

    Here is a detailed program in TypeScript that does this:

    import * as eks from '@pulumi/eks'; import * as pulumi from '@pulumi/pulumi'; import * as kubernetes from '@pulumi/kubernetes'; // Create an EKS cluster. const cluster = new eks.Cluster('my-cluster', { // Define your EKS cluster options here. // For example, you can configure the version with the `version` option: // version: "1.21", }); // Export the cluster's kubeconfig. export const kubeconfig = cluster.kubeconfig; // Create a Kubernetes provider instance that uses our EKS cluster's kubeconfig. const provider = new kubernetes.Provider('k8s-provider', { kubeconfig: cluster.kubeconfig, }); // Deploy the tailscale-subnet-router Helm chart into the EKS cluster. const tailscaleSubnetRouterChart = new kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart('tailscale-subnet-router', { chart: 'tailscale-subnet-router', // Specify the Helm chart repository and version here, for example: // repo: "https://myhelmrepo/", // version: "1.2.3", // values: { /* Helm values for custom configuration */ }, }, { provider }); // Optionally export any needed resource attributes, such as the Helm release status or specific services.


    • The eks.Cluster class creates a managed Kubernetes cluster on AWS EKS with sensible defaults, but you can customize every aspect of it as needed (like the Kubernetes version, node size, etc.).
    • The kubeconfig output of the eks.Cluster instance is a necessary configuration that allows clients to connect to the cluster.
    • The kubernetes.Provider class is used to create a Pulumi Kubernetes provider that knows how to communicate with our EKS cluster using the kubeconfig.
    • The kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart class is used to represent the deployment of a Helm chart. In this case, we’re deploying the tailscale-subnet-router chart. You would need to provide the chart's repository and version number, and any configuration values the chart requires.
    • The { provider } argument specifies that the Helm chart should be deployed to the Kubernetes cluster associated with the specified provider, which in this case, is our EKS cluster.

    To use this program:

    • Install Pulumi and configure AWS credentials.
    • Ensure you have Node.js and npm installed to run the TypeScript program.
    • Place the TypeScript code in a file named index.ts.
    • Run npm install @pulumi/eks @pulumi/pulumi @pulumi/kubernetes.
    • Run pulumi up to create the resources as defined in the code.

    For the tailscale-subnet-router Helm chart, you'll need to find the specific repository and version you wish to install, which should be provided in place of the example comments in the code.
