1. Deploy the cassandra-reaper helm chart on Opensshift


    To deploy the Cassandra Reaper Helm chart on an OpenShift cluster using Pulumi, we will use the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart resource from the Pulumi Kubernetes provider. This allows us to leverage Helm charts to deploy applications on a Kubernetes cluster, including OpenShift.

    The Chart resource is a high-level component that deploys a Helm chart by name from a repository. We'll specify the required chart (cassandra-reaper) and provide configuration values to customize the deployment as necessary. Note that you'll need to have Helm installed and configured on your machine where Pulumi is running, as Pulumi will use the Helm CLI to fetch the required chart and its dependencies.

    Below is a TypeScript program that demonstrates how to use Pulumi to deploy the Cassandra Reaper Helm chart to an OpenShift cluster. We'll assume that you have already set up your OpenShift cluster and Pulumi environment, and that you're authenticated with the cluster.

    First, we need to ensure that the @pulumi/kubernetes package is installed:

    npm install @pulumi/kubernetes

    Now, here's a Pulumi program that performs the deployment:

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; const namespace = "default"; // Replace with the namespace you want to deploy to, if different // Create a Helm Chart resource for the Cassandra Reaper const cassandraReaperChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("cassandra-reaper", { // Replace with the repository that hosts the cassandra-reaper chart repo: "cassandra-reaper-repo", chart: "cassandra-reaper", version: "1.0.0", // Specify the version of the chart you want to deploy namespace: namespace, // If the Cassandra Reaper chart requires values to customize the deployment, // provide them here. values: { // ... set any values required for the Cassandra Reaper chart }, // If you have a specific OpenShift project you want to deploy to, // you can add it here. fetchOpts: { // ... additional options if needed }, }, { provider: yourOpenShiftProvider }); // 'yourOpenShiftProvider' should be replaced with the Pulumi provider instance for your OpenShift cluster export const chartName = cassandraReaperChart.name;

    This program does the following:

    1. We import the kubernetes package from Pulumi to interact with Kubernetes/OpenShift resources.

    2. We define a namespace where the Helm chart will be deployed. In this case, it defaults to default, but you can replace this with any namespace you desire.

    3. We create a new Chart resource, named cassandra-reaper, representing the deployment of the Cassandra Reaper Helm chart.

    4. We have to fill in the repo property with the name of the repository that hosts the Cassandra Reaper chart and specify the appropriate chart version.

    5. We use the values field to set any customized values needed by the Helm chart. These would typically match what you would set in a values.yaml file for Helm.

    6. The fetchOpts field is optionally used to specify additional options for fetching the Helm chart, such as credentials for a private repository.

    7. The program concludes by exporting the name of the Helm chart for easy access if needed later on.

    Before running this Pulumi program, replace the placeholders such as cassandra-reaper-repo, 1.0.0, and yourOpenShiftProvider with actual values that correspond to your setup. The yourOpenShiftProvider variable should be replaced with a configured instance of an OpenShift provider, ensuring Pulumi can interact with your cluster.

    Finally, to run this program, simply execute pulumi up from the same directory as your index.ts file. Pulumi will start the deployment process and provide you with information about the progress and resources being deployed.

    Remember to check the Helm chart's documentation for any prerequisites and recommended configurations before deployment. Helm charts often have specific settings that need to be provided for successful deployment in different environments.
