1. Deploy the ibm-minio-objectstore helm chart on Rancher


    To deploy the ibm-minio-objectstore helm chart on a Rancher-managed Kubernetes cluster using Pulumi, we will:

    1. Set up the Rancher2 Pulumi provider to manage resources in Rancher.
    2. Create a CatalogV2 resource to add the Helm chart repository to Rancher.
    3. Deploy the ibm-minio-objectstore chart using the helm.v3.Chart resource in Pulumi.

    We will use Pulumi's TypeScript SDK to write the program. This choice allows us to define infrastructure as code in a high-level, strongly typed language.

    Here's how the Pulumi program will be structured:

    • Import necessary packages and set up the Pulumi provider for Rancher.
    • Define a new Helm chart repository in Rancher using CatalogV2.
    • Deploy the ibm-minio-objectstore Helm chart from the added repository to the specified Rancher Kubernetes cluster.

    Below is the complete program:

    import * as rancher2 from "@pulumi/rancher2"; import * as helm from "@pulumi/kubernetes/helm"; import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; // Set up Rancher provider const rancherProvider = new rancher2.Provider("rancher-provider", { // Rancher server URL api_url: "<RANCHER_API_URL>", // Rancher API token tokenKey: "<RANCHER_API_TOKEN>", // Rancher cluster ID where the helm chart will be deployed clusterId: "<RANCHER_CLUSTER_ID>", }); // Add the helm chart repository to Rancher as a CatalogV2 const catalog = new rancher2.CatalogV2("ibm-helm-repo", { url: "https://charts.helm.sh/stable", // replace with the URL of the ibm-minio-objectstore helm chart repository, if different clusterId: rancherProvider.clusterId }, { provider: rancherProvider }); // Deploy the `ibm-minio-objectstore` Helm chart const minioChart = new helm.v3.Chart("ibm-minio-objectstore", { // Chart version, repository, and release name details chart: "ibm-minio-objectstore", version: "<CHART_VERSION>", // specify the version of the chart you want to deploy fetchOpts: { repo: "https://charts.helm.sh/stable", // same as above }, // Values to pass to the helm chart, customize these as per requirement values: { // Values customized for the `ibm-minio-objectstore` chart // E.g. `accessKey`, `secretKey`, `replicas`, `persistence` configuration }, // Namespace to deploy the helm chart namespace: "default", // ensure this namespace exists in the target Rancher-managed cluster }, { provider: rancherProvider }); // Export the endpoint of the MinIO instance export const minioEndpoint = minioChart.getResourceProperty("v1/Service", "ibm-minio-objectstore", "status").apply(status => status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].hostname);

    Replace <RANCHER_API_URL>, <RANCHER_API_TOKEN>, and <RANCHER_CLUSTER_ID> with your Rancher server URL, API token, and Cluster ID, respectively. The <CHART_VERSION> should be set to the version of the ibm-minio-objectstore Helm chart you want to deploy.

    This program will create a new Helm Chart Repository in Rancher and then it will deploy the ibm-minio-objectstore chart. After running the program with the Pulumi CLI, the MinIO Object Storage instance should be up and running in the specified Rancher cluster.

    Be sure to have the Pulumi CLI installed and configured to communicate with your cloud provider. To run the program, navigate to the directory containing your index.ts file and execute pulumi up to create or update the resources. After successful deployment, the endpoint of the MinIO instance will be outputted by Pulumi.
