1. Deploy the aws-rds-helm helm chart on Kubernetes


    To deploy the aws-rds-helm Helm chart on a Kubernetes cluster using Pulumi, you would first ensure you have Helm installed, and you have access to a Kubernetes cluster where you want to deploy the chart. Pulumi will leverage the Helm chart capabilities through the Kubernetes provider, which allows you to deploy Helm charts as part of your infrastructure.

    We will use the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart resource from Pulumi's Kubernetes provider, as it allows us to deploy a Helm chart into a Kubernetes cluster. This resource is akin to running helm install or helm upgrade commands, but within the Pulumi program, you can manage your Helm chart releases declaratively along with other cloud resources.

    Here is a step-by-step explanation of the Pulumi program in TypeScript that deploys the aws-rds-helm Helm chart:

    • Import the necessary Pulumi packages.
    • Create a Helm Chart resource, providing the chart name and other required parameters, such as the repository where the chart can be found, and the values to override (if any).
    • Specify namespace if you want to deploy the chart into a specific namespace.

    Below is the TypeScript program:

    import * as k8s from '@pulumi/kubernetes'; // Create a Helm chart resource, specifying the chart repository and release values. const rdsHelmChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart('aws-rds-helm', { // Assuming the `aws-rds-helm` chart is available in a Helm repo that you have added. // Replace `REPO_NAME` with the name of the repository where `aws-rds-helm` chart is located. repo: 'REPO_NAME', chart: 'aws-rds-helm', // Set the version of the chart you wish to deploy. version: 'CHART_VERSION', // Replace `CHART_VERSION` with the specific chart version you want to deploy. // Specify any custom values to the chart. These values will override the defaults provided by the Helm chart. values: { // ...Your custom values here... }, // Optional: specify the namespace where this chart will be deployed. // If not specified, it will be deployed in the default namespace. namespace: 'my-namespace', // Replace with your namespace, or remove if not needed. // Note: `fetchOpts` can also be provided if you need to specify any particular fetch options. }, { // Providers can be set if needed, for example, when you have multiple Kubernetes clusters and need to select which one to deploy to. // provider: myK8sProvider, // Uncomment and replace with your provider if necessary. }); // Export the Helm chart's name and namespace, in case you need to use it outside of Pulumi. export const chartName = rdsHelmChart.metadata.name; export const chartNamespace = rdsHelmChart.metadata.namespace;
