1. Deploy the ibm-sccd helm chart on Linode Kubernetes Engine


    Deploying an IBM SCCD (SmartCloud Control Desk) Helm chart on Linode Kubernetes Engine requires a few steps. Helm charts allow you to deploy and manage Kubernetes applications. Pulumi's Kubernetes provider can be used to deploy Helm charts to any Kubernetes cluster, including one provisioned on Linode Kubernetes Engine (LKE).

    Below is a detailed explanation followed by a Pulumi program that deploys the ibm-sccd Helm chart to an LKE cluster.


    1. A Linode account with a provisioned LKE cluster.
    2. kubeconfig file for accessing your LKE cluster.
    3. Helm chart details (repository URL, chart name, version, etc.) of IBM SCCD.
    4. Pulumi is installed and configured for TypeScript.

    Steps to deploy:

    1. Configure Pulumi to use your kubeconfig file for LKE.
    2. Create a new Pulumi Kubernetes project in TypeScript.
    3. Set up the Helm chart details in Pulumi code.
    4. Deploy the Helm chart using Pulumi.

    Here's a Pulumi TypeScript program that demonstrates these steps:

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Replace 'my-kubeconfig' with the actual path to the kubeconfig file for your LKE cluster. const kubeconfig = 'my-kubeconfig.yml'; // Create a Kubernetes provider instance using the kubeconfig from Linode. // This tells Pulumi how to communicate with your Kubernetes cluster. const provider = new k8s.Provider("lke-k8s", { kubeconfig: kubeconfig, }); // Replace the following variables with the actual details of the Helm chart for IBM SCCD. const chartName = "ibm-sccd"; const chartVersion = "x.x.x"; // Specify the chart version const chartRepo = "https://my-helm-chart-repo.com/"; // The URL of the Helm chart repository // Deploy the ibm-sccd Helm chart. const ibmSccdChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("ibm-sccd-chart", { chart: chartName, version: chartVersion, fetchOpts: { repo: chartRepo, }, // Customize the values for the SCCD chart as needed. values: { // ... add custom Helm values for your SCCD configuration }, }, { provider }); // When the Pulumi program is executed, your LKE cluster will deploy the specified Helm chart.


    • We import the Pulumi Kubernetes package, which provides the necessary tools to work with Kubernetes resources.
    • We configure the Pulumi Kubernetes provider with kubeconfig to ensure it can communicate with the Linode Kubernetes Engine cluster.
    • We instantiate a new Helm chart resource, passing in the chart details, including the name, repository, and any specific values or configurations needed for deployment.

    You can customize the provided values field to configure the IBM SCCD Helm chart as per your requirements. Helm values allow you to set configuration parameters for the chart. For example, you might want to set the number of replicas, resource limits, or environment-specific configurations.

    To execute the Pulumi program, run pulumi up, and Pulumi will perform the deployment to your LKE cluster. The ibmSccdChart constant will help you track and manage the deployment through Pulumi.

    Remember, you'll need to replace placeholder strings like chartVersion, chartRepo, and the configuration inside the values object with actual values that suit your deployment needs for IBM SCCD.
