1. Deploy the ofbiz helm chart on AWS EKS


    To deploy the OFBiz Helm chart on AWS EKS, we will need to perform several steps using Pulumi:

    1. Create an EKS cluster using the @pulumi/eks package.
    2. Deploy OFBiz using the @pulumi/kubernetes package and a Helm Chart reference.

    Steps for Deployment:

    1. Create an EKS Cluster:

    You will need to create an EKS cluster where your Helm chart will be deployed. This cluster will manage your Kubernetes deployments.

    2. Deploy OFBiz Helm Chart:

    Once the EKS cluster is ready, you will use Pulumi's Kubernetes provider to deploy the OFBiz Helm chart to the cluster. Be sure to have Helm chart details ready, like repository URL and chart version, if necessary.

    Now let's go through the Pulumi TypeScript code required to set up an EKS Cluster and deploy the OFBiz Helm chart:

    import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; import * as aws from "@pulumi/aws"; import * as eks from "@pulumi/eks"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Step 1: Create an EKS cluster const cluster = new eks.Cluster("my-cluster", { instanceType: "t2.medium", desiredCapacity: 2, minSize: 1, maxSize: 3, storageClasses: "gp2", deployDashboard: false, }); // Export the cluster's kubeconfig. export const kubeconfig = cluster.kubeconfig; // Step 2: Deploy OFBiz Helm chart on the created EKS cluster // Create a Kubernetes provider instance that uses our EKS cluster's kubeconfig. const provider = new k8s.Provider("k8s", { kubeconfig: cluster.kubeconfig.apply(JSON.stringify), }); // Deploy the OFBiz Helm chart using the Kubernetes provider. const ofbizChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("ofbiz-chart", { chart: "ofbiz", version: "latest", // Replace with the desired chart version // Ensure you provide the correct repo if it's not a stable chart, // or you need to pull from a specific Helm repository. // fetchOpts: { // repo: "http://<helm-chart-repo>" // } }, { provider }); // Optionally, export the Helm chart deployment status. export const ofbizDeployment = ofbizChart.status;


    • The eks.Cluster class is used to provision an EKS cluster. You can adjust the instance types and scaling preferences according to your OFBiz requirements.

    • We disable the deployment of the Kubernetes dashboard as it's deprecated and not recommended for use.

    • The k8s.Provider class allows us to specify that the subsequent Kubernetes resources should be deployed on the EKS cluster we created.

    • The k8s.helm.v3.Chart class is used to deploy Helm charts to the Kubernetes cluster. In the snippet, you'll need to specify the Helm chart name (ofbiz) and version. If the chart is not in the default repository, you will also need to provide the Helm repository URL.

    Please ensure you've configured Pulumi with the necessary AWS credentials and installed the Pulumi CLI. Additionally, replace "latest" with the specific version of the OFBiz chart you intend to deploy.

    By running this Pulumi program, it will create a new EKS cluster suitable for your Helm deployments and then deploy the OFBiz Helm chart onto the cluster. You can then manage and scale OFBiz using Kubernetes and AWS EKS features.
