1. Deploy the minio-directpv helm chart on Linode Kubernetes Engine


    To deploy the minio-directpv Helm chart on Linode Kubernetes Engine using Pulumi, you'll follow these steps:

    1. Set up a new Pulumi project and configure it for use with the Linode Kubernetes Engine.
    2. Define the required Linode Kubernetes Engine resources using Pulumi's Linode provider.
    3. Deploy the minio-directpv chart using Pulumi's Kubernetes provider, which allows you to deploy Helm charts.

    In your Pulumi project, you'll set up the Linode Kubernetes Engine (LKE) cluster using the linode.LKECluster resource. After the cluster is created, you'll configure Pulumi to use the generated kubeconfig for the Kubernetes provider. Finally, you'll use the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart resource to deploy the minio-directpv Helm chart to your LKE cluster.

    Below is a TypeScript program that creates a Linode Kubernetes Engine cluster and deploys the minio-directpv Helm chart onto it.

    import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; import * as linode from "@pulumi/linode"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Step 1: Create a Linode Kubernetes Engine (LKE) cluster const cluster = new linode.LKECluster("my-cluster", { // Specify your Linode region region: "us-central", // Define the Kubernetes version k8sVersion: "1.21", // Define the node pools for your cluster pools: [{ type: "g6-standard-1", count: 1, }], }); // Step 2: Use the generated kubeconfig from the LKE cluster for the Kubernetes provider const k8sProvider = new k8s.Provider("k8sProvider", { kubeconfig: cluster.kubeconfig.apply(JSON.stringify), }); // Step 3: Deploy the `minio-directpv` Helm chart using the Kubernetes provider const minioChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("minio-directpv", { // Specify the chart, version, and repository chart: "minio-directpv", version: "0.1.0", // Replace with the desired version of the chart repositoryOpts: { repo: "https://linode.github.io/helm-charts/", // Replace with the Helm chart repository URL }, values: { // Set Helm chart values here, for example: accessKey: "minio", secretKey: "minio123", }, }, { provider: k8sProvider }); // Export the cluster's kubeconfig and endpoint export const kubeconfig = cluster.kubeconfig; export const endpoint = cluster.endpoint;

    This specific Pulumi program completes the following tasks:

    1. It creates a Linode Kubernetes Engine cluster with a single node pool in the us-central region and with Kubernetes version 1.21. You can customize the region, version, and size as per your requirements.

    2. It sets up a Kubernetes provider with the kubeconfig of the created LKE cluster.

    3. It deploys a Helm chart named minio-directpv from the provided Helm chart repository. Make sure the chart version 0.1.0 is what you need; you might need to replace it with the current version. It also provides some example values for the chart — accessKey and secretKey. You'll want to customize the values field with the necessary parameters required for your Minio deployment, such as persistence options, resource constraints, and any configuration relevant to directpv.

    Ensure you have Pulumi installed, you are authenticated with both Linode and Pulumi, and you have the necessary permissions to create resources in your Linode account. After setting up, you can run this program using pulumi up command, which will deploy the resources to Linode and output the cluster's kubeconfig and endpoint that you can use to interact with your cluster.
