1. Deploy the ceph helm chart on Kubernetes


    To deploy the Ceph Helm chart on a Kubernetes cluster using Pulumi, we will be using the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart resource from the Pulumi Kubernetes provider. This resource allows us to deploy Helm charts to a Kubernetes cluster with great flexibility.

    Before we dive into the code, make sure you have the following prerequisites:

    1. Pulumi CLI installed.
    2. Kubernetes cluster set up and kubeconfig file ready, with the current context set to the cluster where you want to deploy Ceph.
    3. Helm and Tiller should be installed on your Kubernetes cluster if using Helm 2. For Helm 3, Tiller is not required.

    Here's how you can deploy the Ceph Helm chart using Pulumi:

    1. First, we'll import the required Pulumi packages in our TypeScript program.
    2. We'll then create an instance of Chart which will represent the Ceph Helm chart.
    3. We'll specify the necessary chart name, version, and any values that need to be overridden.

    Below is the TypeScript program:

    import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; import * as kubernetes from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Define Ceph Helm chart parameters such as repository, chart name, version, and values. const cephChartParams: kubernetes.helm.v3.ChartOpts = { chart: "ceph", version: "<SPECIFY_VERSION>", // Specify the version of Ceph you wish to deploy // Replace "<REPO_NAME>" with the name of the repository containing the Ceph Helm chart. // Replace "<REPO_URL>" with the URL of the Helm chart repository. // This can be obtained from Ceph's official documentation or Helm hub. fetchOpts: { repo: "<REPO_URL>", }, // Include any specific `values` you want here. These will override the defaults provided by the Helm chart. // Values should reflect your specific configuration needs for Ceph. values: { // Example configuration - must be changed according to actual requirements // For the actual values, consult the Ceph Helm chart's `values.yaml` file // and the Ceph documentation. global: { namespace: "ceph", // Specify the namespace where Ceph will be installed. }, // ... additional configuration values ... }, }; // Create a new Helm chart instance for Ceph const cephChart = new kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart("ceph", cephChartParams); // Export any important information, such as a service URL if created. export const cephClusterUrl = cephChart .getResourceProperty("v1/Service", "ceph", "ui") .apply(status => status ? status.spec.clusterIP : "Not available");

    Replace "<SPECIFY_VERSION>" with the specific version of the Ceph Helm chart you want to use. Similarly, replace "<REPO_NAME>", and "<REPO_URL>" with the appropriate repository name and the URL where the Helm chart is located, respectively. You can find these details in the Ceph chart documentation.

    Additionally, inside the values field, you can override the default values in the Ceph Helm chart's values.yaml file according to your requirements.

    Using getResourceProperty, we attempt to export the URL of the Ceph management interface if applicable. This step depends on the resources that the Ceph Helm chart might create and may need adjustment based on the specifics of the chart you're deploying.

    Once this program is written, you can run pulumi up in the terminal to preview and deploy your changes. If everything is set up correctly, Pulumi will deploy the Ceph Helm chart to your Kubernetes cluster.

    Remember that this is a very general example, and actual Helm chart configurations can vary. You may need to look into the Helm chart documentation provided by the chart maintainers to understand all of the configurable options and what configuration your Ceph cluster requires before deployment.
