1. Deploy the open-vpn helm chart on AWS EKS


    To deploy the OpenVPN helm chart on AWS EKS using Pulumi, you'll need to perform a series of steps which include:

    1. Provisioning an Amazon EKS cluster
    2. Configuring the Kubernetes provider to connect to the EKS cluster
    3. Deploying the OpenVPN helm chart on the cluster

    We'll use the @pulumi/eks package to create the EKS cluster and the @pulumi/kubernetes package to deploy the Helm chart.

    Here is a step-by-step Pulumi program in TypeScript to accomplish the task:

    import * as eks from '@pulumi/eks'; import * as pulumi from '@pulumi/pulumi'; import * as k8s from '@pulumi/kubernetes'; // Step 1: Create an EKS cluster. const cluster = new eks.Cluster('my-cluster', { instanceType: 't2.medium', // Or your preferred instance type desiredCapacity: 2, // Number of worker nodes minSize: 1, maxSize: 2, }); // Export the cluster's kubeconfig. export const kubeconfig = cluster.kubeconfig; // Step 2: Use the kubeconfig from the created EKS cluster to configure the Kubernetes provider. const provider = new k8s.Provider('k8s-provider', { kubeconfig: cluster.kubeconfig.apply(JSON.stringify), }); // Step 3: Deploy the OpenVPN helm chart using the Kubernetes provider. const openvpn = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart('openvpn', { chart: 'openvpn', version: '4.2.0', // Specify the version of the chart you want to deploy namespace: 'default', // Specify the namespace if desired // Note: You may need to set values to configure OpenVPN as needed. values: { // Add any values here to configure the OpenVPN chart. // Check the chart's values.yaml for available options. // e.g., service: { type: LoadBalancer } }, }, { provider }); // Export the endpoint to access the OpenVPN server export const openvpnEndpoint = openvpn.getResourceProperty('v1/Service', 'openvpn', 'status').apply(status => status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].ip);


    1. We initialize an EKS cluster named 'my-cluster'. instanceType, desiredCapacity, minSize, and maxSize are configurable based on your needs.

    2. The kubeconfig for the cluster is exported. This kubeconfig is used by the Kubernetes provider to interact with the EKS cluster.

    3. We create a new Kubernetes provider configured to use the kubeconfig from the EKS cluster.

    4. We deploy the OpenVPN helm chart using the Kubernetes provider, which connects to the cluster and applies the chart. In this step, you can specify the values that configure OpenVPN to meet your requirements.

    5. Lastly, we export the OpenVPN service endpoint which you can use to access the OpenVPN server after it's been deployed.

    Remember to replace '4.2.0' with the version of the OpenVPN chart you wish to deploy and provide appropriate configuration values under values key to customize the deployment as per the OpenVPN Helm chart's values.yaml.
