1. Deploy the supportmonkey helm chart on AWS EKS


    To deploy the "supportmonkey" Helm chart on an AWS EKS cluster using Pulumi, you'll need to follow these steps:

    1. Set up an EKS cluster.
    2. Deploy the Helm chart onto the EKS cluster.

    The code below is written in TypeScript and it uses Pulumi's EKS package to create a managed Kubernetes cluster on AWS EKS and then uses Pulumi's Kubernetes provider to deploy a Helm chart.

    First, ensure that you have installed the necessary Pulumi providers for AWS and Kubernetes. You should have the Pulumi CLI installed and have AWS credentials configured.

    Here's how you can create an EKS cluster and deploy the "supportmonkey" Helm chart:

    import * as eks from "@pulumi/eks"; import * as aws from "@pulumi/aws"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Create an EKS cluster. const cluster = new eks.Cluster("supportmonkey-cluster", { // Specify the desired settings for the cluster here. // For example, you can define the number of nodes, the node type, the Kubernetes version, etc. }); // Export the clusters' kubeconfig. export const kubeconfig = cluster.kubeconfig; // Create a Kubernetes provider instance using the kubeconfig from the generated EKS cluster. const provider = new k8s.Provider("supportmonkey-provider", { kubeconfig: cluster.kubeconfig, }); // Deploy the "supportmonkey" Helm chart onto the EKS cluster. const supportmonkeyChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("supportmonkey", { chart: "supportmonkey", // Specify here any values that the chart requires. // values: { ... }, }, { provider }); // Export the URL (if relevant) or other details necessary to access your application. // export const applicationUrl = ...;

    Explanation for each part:

    • eks.Cluster: This is a Pulumi resource from the @pulumi/eks package which is used for creating and managing an EKS cluster. It's a high-level abstraction that simplifies working with EKS.

    • kubeconfig: This is an output property that provides you with the kubeconfig file content necessary for interfacing with your cluster using kubectl and other Kubernetes tools.

    • k8s.Provider: This resource is used to create a provider that encapsulates the kubeconfig of the cluster, thus allowing the Pulumi Kubernetes provider to interact with it.

    • k8s.helm.v3.Chart: This resource is from the @pulumi/kubernetes package and represents a Helm chart which you want to deploy to your cluster. Here, it is used to deploy the "supportmonkey" chart. Replace chart: "supportmonkey" with the actual name of the Helm chart you wish to deploy.

    Remember to replace placeholders with the actual values for the cluster and the Helm chart you are deploying. The chart might require additional configuration which can be specified inside the values object.

    Additional Information:

    • Documentation for the EKS cluster can be found here.
    • Pulumi's Kubernetes provider documentation is available here.
    • The exported kubeconfig will allow you to interface with your EKS cluster using kubectl. Remember to store this securely as it provides administrative access to your Kubernetes cluster.
    • The EKS cluster creation process might take a few minutes, and deploying the Helm chart will commence once the cluster is ready.

    Once you've written this code, you can use Pulumi's CLI to deploy your infrastructure by running pulumi up within the directory where your Pulumi code is located. The CLI will interpret your code and provision the resources as defined.
