1. Deploy the gcpdisk-csi-driver helm chart on Oracle Kubernetes Engine (OKE)


    To deploy the gcpdisk-csi-driver Helm chart on Oracle Kubernetes Engine (OKE), you will need to perform the following steps:

    1. Set up an OKE cluster: You'll need an operational OKE cluster to deploy your applications. If you have not already, create one using the OCI Container Engine for Kubernetes.

    2. Configure Pulumi to interact with your OCI account: Ensure that Pulumi can authenticate with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) using your credentials.

    3. Install the CSI driver using a Helm chart: With Pulumi, you can deploy the helm chart by creating a helm.v3.Chart resource in your Pulumi program.

    Here is a detailed explanation followed by the TypeScript Pulumi program that carries out the above actions:

    • Pulumi Setup: This program assumes you have already installed Pulumi and configured OCI with Pulumi. You should also configure your Oracle Kubernetes Engine with the necessary access configurations to allow Pulumi to manage resources within your OCI account.

    • OCI Kubernetes Cluster: We'll use the oci.ContainerEngine.Cluster OCI resource to interact with OKE. Please ensure you have created an OKE cluster in your OCI account, which can be done via the OCI console, OCI CLI, or using Pulumi. This program will not create the OKE cluster but will deploy resources onto an existing one.

    • Helm Chart for CSI Driver: We will use the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart resource from Pulumi's Kubernetes provider to deploy the gcpdisk-csi-driver Helm chart. This resource is a representation of a Helm chart from a high-level Pulumi program which enables us to describe the Helm chart we want to deploy declaratively.

    Here's the TypeScript code which applies these principles to deploy the gcpdisk-csi-driver Helm chart:

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Use an existing K8s provider for the OCI cluster (assumes you have configured it) const provider = new k8s.Provider("oke-k8s", { kubeconfig: "<YOUR_OKE_KUBECONFIG_HERE>", }); // Deploy the gcpdisk-csi-driver Helm chart const csiDriverChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("gcpdisk-csi-driver", { chart: "gcpdisk-csi-driver", version: "<HELM_CHART_VERSION>", // Specify the version of the Helm chart you want to deploy fetchOpts: { repo: "https://kubernetes-sigs.github.io/gcp-filestore-csi-driver/", // The repository URL of the gcpdisk-csi-driver }, }, { provider }); // Export the name of the chart we've deployed export const chartName = csiDriverChart.metadata.name;

    Make sure to replace <YOUR_OKE_KUBECONFIG_HERE> with your OKE cluster's kubeconfig contents and <HELM_CHART_VERSION> with the version of the Helm chart you want to install.

    This script defines a single Pulumi resource: a Helm chart that installs the gcpdisk-csi-driver. Ensure that the repo URL points to the location where the Helm chart is stored. It's also necessary to specify the version of the chart you wish to deploy to ensure repeatable deployments.

    To run this Pulumi program, you'd place it in a file (e.g., index.ts) and execute pulumi up within that project directory in your terminal. Pulumi will then preview the deployment and, upon confirmation, will apply the changes to your OKE cluster.

    Refer to the Pulumi documentation for further information on creating Pulumi projects, writing Pulumi programs, and running Pulumi commands.
