1. Deploy the ibm-db2 helm chart on Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)


    To deploy the IBM DB2 Helm chart on an Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) cluster using Pulumi, you'll need to follow these steps:

    1. Set up an AKS cluster.
    2. Install the Helm chart to the AKS cluster.

    We'll be using two Pulumi packages for this process:

    • @pulumi/azure-native to create and manage Azure resources natively.
    • @pulumi/kubernetes to interact with the Kubernetes cluster and to deploy Helm charts.

    Firstly, you'll need to create the AKS cluster. This involves creating a resource group, defining the AKS cluster, and then provisioning it. Once your AKS cluster is running, you can configure Pulumi to use the newly created cluster's kubeconfig.

    Secondly, you'll deploy the IBM DB2 using a Helm Chart. Helm charts are packages that contain pre-configured Kubernetes resources. You can use Pulumi's Chart resource to deploy Helm Charts.

    Here's the TypeScript program that performs the tasks described:

    import * as azure from "@pulumi/azure-native"; import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Create an Azure Resource Group const resourceGroup = new azure.resources.ResourceGroup("my-resource-group"); // Create an AKS cluster const cluster = new azure.containerservice.KubernetesCluster("my-aks-cluster", { resourceGroupName: resourceGroup.name, agentPoolProfiles: [{ count: 1, vmSize: azure.containerservice.VmSizeTypes.Standard_DS2_v2, mode: "System", }], dnsPrefix: "myakscluster", identity: { type: "SystemAssigned", }, location: resourceGroup.location, }); // Export the KubeConfig export const kubeConfig = cluster.kubeConfig; // Create a Kubernetes Provider using the KubeConfig from the AKS cluster we created earlier const k8sProvider = new k8s.Provider("k8s-provider", { kubeconfig: kubeConfig.apply(kubeConfig => kubeConfig), }); // Deploy IBM DB2 using the Helm Chart const db2Chart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("ibm-db2", { chart: "ibm-db2", version: "YOUR_CHART_VERSION", // Replace with the version you want to deploy fetchOpts: { repo: "YOUR_HELM_REPO_URL", // Replace with the URL to your IBM DB2 Helm repo }, }, { provider: k8sProvider }); // Optional: Export the status of the Helm release export const db2Status = db2Chart.status;


    Here's a breakdown of the crucial parts of the script:

    • Azure Resource Group: This is a grouping for all the resources that will be created. You can think of it as a logical container where your AKS cluster will live.

    • Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) Cluster: This is the managed Kubernetes cluster deployed in Azure.

    • Kubernetes Provider: This is a Pulumi concept that packages the logic required to interact with Kubernetes. We're making use of the kubeconfig of our newly created AKS cluster to configure this provider.

    • Helm Chart for IBM DB2: We are deploying the IBM DB2 Helm chart into our AKS cluster. Make sure to replace YOUR_CHART_VERSION with the specific version of the Helm chart you wish to deploy and YOUR_HELM_REPO_URL with the URL where the Helm repository is located.

    At the end of the script, we're optionally exporting the status of the DB2 Helm release. This will allow you to see if your deployment went as expected.

    To use this Pulumi program, you should have the Pulumi CLI installed and set up with your Azure account credentials. Upon running this program with pulumi up, it will perform all the necessary steps to provision your AKS cluster and deploy the IBM DB2 to it.
