1. Deploy the ibm-glusterfs helm chart on AWS EKS


    To deploy the IBM GlusterFS Helm chart on an AWS EKS cluster using Pulumi, we'll go through the following steps:

    1. Set up an AWS EKS cluster.
    2. Deploy the Helm chart for IBM GlusterFS onto the EKS cluster.

    We'll be using Pulumi's eks package to create an EKS cluster, which simplifies the creation of an EKS cluster and its dependencies. Once the cluster is set up, we'll utilize the kubernetes package to deploy the Helm chart.

    Here's how you can write a TypeScript program with Pulumi to achieve this:

    import * as eks from "@pulumi/eks"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; // Step 1: Create an EKS Cluster. // 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; // Step 2: Deploy the IBM GlusterFS Helm chart on the EKS cluster. // Create a Kubernetes provider instance that uses our EKS cluster from above. const provider = new k8s.Provider("k8s-provider", { kubeconfig: cluster.kubeconfig.apply(JSON.stringify), }); // Deploy the IBM GlusterFS Helm chart using the Kubernetes provider. const glusterfsChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("ibm-glusterfs", { chart: "glusterfs", // This should be the name of the chart in the Helm repository. version: "1.0.0", // Replace with the desired chart version. fetchOpts: { repo: "https://charts.myglusterfs.com/", // Replace with the actual Helm chart repository URL. }, }, { provider }); // Export the Helm chart deployment status. export const chartStatus = glusterfsChart.status;

    Let's break down what the program does:

    • We import the necessary Pulumi packages to interact with EKS and Kubernetes.
    • We create an EKS cluster with a simple configuration. The eks.Cluster class abstracts away the complexities of creating an EKS cluster. The cluster settings can be customized by passing arguments to the constructor.
    • We set up the kubeconfig to allow kubectl and other Kubernetes tooling to communicate with the EKS cluster.
    • We initialize a Pulumi Kubernetes provider that ties into our created EKS cluster. This allows us to deploy Kubernetes resources to the EKS cluster.
    • We deploy the IBM GlusterFS Helm chart by creating an instance of the k8s.helm.v3.Chart resource, which represents a Helm chart deployment.
    • We need to ensure you have the correct chart name and repository URL. Replace the placeholders with the actual values specific to the IBM GlusterFS Helm chart.
    • The status of the Helm deployment is exported so that you can check if the deployment was successful.

    Please note this program assumes the Helm chart for IBM GlusterFS is available in a Helm repository and that you have already configured your AWS credentials for Pulumi to use. Replace "https://charts.myglusterfs.com/" with the actual repository URL.

    To run this Pulumi program:

    1. Save the code to a file called index.ts.
    2. Ensure you have the Pulumi CLI installed and configured for AWS access.
    3. Run pulumi up to execute the Pulumi program, which will provision the resources on AWS.
