1. Deploy the zipkin-gcp helm chart on AWS EKS


    To deploy the Zipkin-GCP Helm chart on Amazon EKS, you'll need to follow these steps:

    1. Create an EKS Cluster: You will need an EKS cluster to deploy your Helm chart. Using the eks.Cluster resource, you can create and configure your Kubernetes cluster on AWS.

    2. Install and Configure Helm: Helm is a package manager for Kubernetes, and you will use it to deploy the Zipkin-GCP chart. You'll need to ensure Helm is installed on your local machine or within a CI/CD environment and configured to interact with your EKS cluster.

    3. Deploy the Helm Chart: Using the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart resource, you can deploy the Zipkin-GCP Helm chart to your EKS cluster.

    Below is an example program written in TypeScript that shows how to create an EKS cluster and deploy the Zipkin-GCP Helm chart to it using Pulumi. This program assumes that you have Pulumi installed, and you are already logged in to your AWS and Pulumi accounts via the command line.

    import * as eks from "@pulumi/eks"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; // Create an EKS cluster. const cluster = new eks.Cluster("my-cluster", { desiredCapacity: 2, minSize: 1, maxSize: 3, instanceType: "t2.medium", // Choose an instance type appropriate for your workload }); // Export the cluster's kubeconfig. export const kubeconfig = cluster.kubeconfig; // Create a Kubernetes provider instance that uses our cluster from above. const k8sProvider = new k8s.Provider("k8s-provider", { kubeconfig: cluster.kubeconfig.apply(JSON.stringify), }); // Deploy the Zipkin-GCP Helm chart. const zipkinGcpChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("zipkin-gcp", { chart: "zipkin-gcp", version: "<CHART VERSION>", // Specify the version of the Zipkin-GCP chart you want to deploy // You can specify the Helm repo here if it's not a part of the stable repo namespace: "default", // Specify the namespace where you want to install your chart. values: { // Here you will specify the configuration for your Zipkin-GCP Helm chart // For example, if the chart accepts a config value to specify the persistence // you will have to specify that in this 'values' section, like so: // persistence: // size: "10Gi", }, }, { provider: k8sProvider }); // Export the Helm chart name and status export const zipkinGcpChartName = zipkinGcpChart.metadata.apply(m => m.name); export const zipkinGcpChartStatus = zipkinGcpChart.status.apply(s => s.toString());

    What this program does:

    • It initializes a new EKS cluster with eks.Cluster. The cluster will use t2.medium instances, but you'll want to select the instance type that best fits your needs.
    • It creates a new Kubernetes provider to interact with the EKS cluster.
    • It then uses the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart resource to deploy the Zipkin-GCP helm chart. You'll need to replace <CHART VERSION> with the version of the Helm chart you want to deploy. Additionally, you will need to fill in the values object with any specific configuration values required for the Zipkin-GCP Helm Chart.
    • It exports some outputs which you can use to see information about the deployed chart, like its name and status.

    Before running this program with pulumi up, ensure you have Helm installed on your local machine and that you've set up the AWS CLI with credentials and a default region configured.

    Remember to check the Pulumi documentation for EKS and the official Helm documentation if you need more information on configuring those tools.
