1. Deploy the cardinal helm chart on AWS EKS


    To deploy the cardinal Helm chart on an AWS Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) cluster, you'll need to follow these steps:

    1. Set up an EKS cluster: This is your Kubernetes environment in AWS where your applications will run.
    2. Install the Helm chart on the cluster: Helm is a package manager for Kubernetes that allows you to deploy applications defined by Helm charts.

    The following program does exactly this using Pulumi in TypeScript:

    • We use the eks package to create an EKS cluster. The eks.Cluster class abstracts away the details of setting up an EKS cluster.
    • We use the kubernetes package to deploy the cardinal Helm chart. The helm.v3.Chart class is a Pulumi resource that can deploy a chart to a Kubernetes cluster.

    I'll provide you with a detailed Pulumi program that will:

    • Create an EKS cluster.
    • Deploy the cardinal Helm chart onto the cluster.

    Please ensure that you have AWS credentials configured for Pulumi to use and the Pulumi CLI installed.

    Here's the detailed program:

    import * as pulumi from '@pulumi/pulumi'; import * as eks from '@pulumi/eks'; import * as k8s from '@pulumi/kubernetes'; // Step 1: Create an EKS cluster // This will set up all necessary resources for an EKS cluster. const cluster = new eks.Cluster('cardinal-cluster', { instanceType: 't2.medium', // Adjust the instance type as needed desiredCapacity: 2, // Specify the number of worker nodes minSize: 1, // Minimum number of worker nodes maxSize: 3, // Maximum number of worker nodes storageClasses: 'gp2', // Default storage class for EBS deployDashboard: false, // EKS dashboard is deprecated; set to false }); // Step 2: Deploy the cardinal Helm chart // Before running this program, ensure you have Helm chart information such as the repository URL // and the chart version you wish to deploy. You may need to adjust the Helm chart values according // to your requirements. The chart values can be supplied via the `values` property. const cardinalHelmChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart('cardinal', { chart: 'cardinal', // The name of the chart version: '1.0.0', // Replace with the specific version you need fetchOpts:{ repo: 'https://charts.example.com/', // Replace with the actual Helm chart repository URL }, }, { provider: cluster.provider }); // Export the cluster's kubeconfig and the Helm chart deployment status export const kubeconfig = cluster.kubeconfig; export const cardinalStatus = cardinalHelmChart.status;

    In this program:

    • We're creating an EKS cluster named 'cardinal-cluster'. You can adjust parameters such as instance types and the number of nodes per your requirements.
    • We're deploying the 'cardinal' Helm chart. You need to replace 'https://charts.example.com/' with the URL of the Helm chart repository that contains the 'cardinal' chart.

    Make sure to replace '1.0.0' with the exact version of the cardinal Helm chart you intend to deploy, as well as specifying any required configuration in the values if necessary.

    After running this program with the Pulumi CLI, you authenticate kubectl against the new EKS cluster using the exported kubeconfig, and you should be able to see your Helm chart deployed with kubectl get all.

    Make sure your Pulumi stack is selected, and simply run pulumi up to execute the deployment.
