1. MongoDB Atlas for Secure Intra-Cloud Communication


    In order to establish secure intra-cloud communication with MongoDB Atlas using Pulumi, you'll need to use the pulumi_mongodbatlas package. This package provides a set of resources that can be used to manage MongoDB Atlas configurations, including creating clusters, managing network peering, and setting up private endpoints.

    Here's an overview of some of the resources and steps you might consider:

    1. mongodbatlas.Cluster: This resource helps you create a MongoDB Atlas cluster which is the core component for your databases.

    2. mongodbatlas.NetworkPeering: This allows you to create, manage, and delete the Network Peering connections which connect your Atlas clusters to your cloud provider’s networks.

    3. mongodbatlas.PrivateEndpoint: MongoDB Atlas Private Endpoints provide private network access to your MongoDB clusters, improving the security of your setup by ensuring that network traffic between your application and database does not go over the public internet.

    I'll provide a sample program that creates a MongoDB Atlas cluster and sets up a private endpoint for secure communication within the cloud. Before proceeding with the code, make sure to set up your MongoDB Atlas provider with the necessary API keys and project ID in your environment.

    Make sure you have the pulumi_mongodbatlas package installed using:

    pip install pulumi_mongodbatlas

    Below is a detailed Pulumi Python program that sets up a secure intra-cloud communication path with MongoDB Atlas:

    import pulumi import pulumi_mongodbatlas as mongodbatlas # Configure your MongoDB Atlas project ID and provider connectivity. # Replace 'your_api_key', 'your_private_key', 'your_project_id' with your Atlas credentials. # It's recommended to use Pulumi Config or Environment Variables for sensitive data. atlas_provider = mongodbatlas.Provider("atlas-provider", public_key="your_api_key", private_key="your_private_key", project_id="your_project_id" ) # Create a MongoDB Atlas Cluster cluster = mongodbatlas.Cluster("my-cluster", project_id=atlas_provider.project_id, name="my-cluster", cluster_type="REPLICASET", provider_instance_size_name="M10", provider_name="AWS", # Assuming AWS as the cloud provider provider_region_name="US_EAST_1", disk_size_gb=10, opts=pulumi.ResourceOptions(provider=atlas_provider) ) # A private endpoint on AWS which enables secure intra-cloud communication to the MongoDB cluster. # Note: You'll need to replace 'your_aws_region' and 'your_aws_account_id' with the region and account ID. private_endpoint = mongodbatlas.PrivateEndpoint("my-private-endpoint", project_id=atlas_provider.project_id, provider_name="AWS_PRIVATE_ENDPOINT", region="your_aws_region", opts=pulumi.ResourceOptions(provider=atlas_provider) ) # Output the private endpoint details pulumi.export("private_endpoint_id", private_endpoint.private_endpoint_id) pulumi.export("private_endpoint_service_name", private_endpoint.service_name) # Note: You may also need to create appropriate peering connections depending on your setup # and configure VPC routes/routes tables to route the traffic to and from the Atlas cluster # securely through the Private Endpoint.

    This program does the following:

    • Sets up a MongoDB Atlas provider using your API key and secret, and your project ID.
    • Creates a MongoDB Atlas cluster named "my-cluster". The size and other properties of the cluster are defined in the mongodbatlas.Cluster resource parameters.
    • Sets up a private endpoint for the cluster on AWS, which can be used to establish a secure network connection from your application infrastructure inside AWS to MongoDB Atlas without going over the public internet.

    You will need to replace the placeholders (your_api_key, your_private_key, your_project_id, your_aws_region, and your_aws_account_id) with your actual MongoDB Atlas and AWS account details.

    It's essential to secure your API keys and project ID. These should not be hard-coded in your program but managed through secure mechanisms like the Pulumi Config system or environment variables.

    Keep in mind that this is a simple example for the sake of illustration. In a real-world scenario, you would handle VPC configurations, set up network peering if required, and manage security groups and IAM roles/policies within your cloud provider to ensure that the communication is appropriately secured.
