1. Deploy the ibm-mq-operator helm chart on AWS EKS


    To deploy the IBM MQ Operator Helm chart on AWS EKS, we will need to complete several steps:

    1. Create an EKS Cluster: Provision an Amazon EKS cluster using Pulumi by creating an instance of eks.Cluster.
    2. Setting up Helm: Initialize Helm on the EKS cluster which allows us to deploy Helm charts.
    3. Deploy the Helm Chart: Finally, deploy the ibm-mq-operator Helm chart onto our EKS cluster using the Pulumi Kubernetes provider and the Chart resource.

    Here's a Pulumi program in TypeScript to accomplish this task:

    import * as aws from "@pulumi/aws"; import * as eks from "@pulumi/eks"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Step 1: Create an EKS cluster const cluster = new eks.Cluster("my-cluster", { desiredCapacity: 2, minSize: 1, maxSize: 3, instanceType: "t2.medium", }); // Export the cluster's kubeconfig. export const kubeconfig = cluster.kubeconfig; // Step 2: Setting our K8s provider const provider = new k8s.Provider("provider", { kubeconfig: cluster.kubeconfig.rawConfig, }); // Step 3: Deploying the IBM MQ Operator Helm chart const chart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("ibm-mq-operator", { chart: "ibm-mq-operator", // You'll usually specify the repository option, chart version and any other custom value here. /* repo: "https://<repository-url>", version: "<chart-version>", values: { // Your custom values here }, */ namespace: "default", // You can declare a custom namespace if required }, { provider }); // Export the URL to access the deployed IBM MQ Operator (if available). export const helmChartUrl = chart.urn;

    This program does the following:

    • Creates an EKS Cluster: It starts by instantiating an EKS cluster with default configurations suitable for small workloads. The instance type t2.medium is specified for the nodes in this cluster, but this should be adjusted according to your actual needs.
    • Provider Initialization: Sets up a Kubernetes provider using the generated kubeconfig from the created EKS cluster. This allows Pulumi to communicate with your EKS cluster.
    • IBM MQ Operator Helm Deployment: It deploys the Helm Chart for IBM MQ Operator into the default Kubernetes namespace. In practice, you may need to specify the repo and version for the Helm chart. If the IBM MQ Operator requires custom values, you can provide them through the values property of the chart.

    Please note that:

    • The actual location (repo) and version of the Helm chart for IBM MQ Operator are not specified, as they would depend on where the chart is hosted and which version you intend to deploy.
    • No custom values are provided to the Helm chart in this example. You will likely need to review the IBM MQ Operator Helm chart documentation for required custom values to configure the deployment according to your needs.
    • Lastly, the urn of the chart is being exported, it's not a URL to access IBM MQ but rather a unique identifier for the deployed resource within Pulumi. If the IBM MQ Operator provides an endpoint after deployment, you may use additional Kubernetes resources or query the chart to expose that information as an output.
