1. Deploy the redis-observability helm chart on AWS EKS


    To deploy the redis-observability Helm chart on an AWS EKS cluster using Pulumi, you will need to follow these steps:

    1. Create an EKS cluster if you don't already have one. You will need the cluster to deploy the Helm chart.
    2. Deploy the Helm chart to the EKS cluster.

    The following Pulumi program in TypeScript will guide you through creating an EKS cluster and then deploying the redis-observability Helm chart onto that cluster. Before you begin, ensure that you have AWS access credentials configured and that you have installed the Pulumi CLI and set up your Pulumi stack.

    Let's break down the steps:

    Step 1: Create an EKS cluster

    To create an EKS cluster, we'll use the Pulumi EKS package, which provides a high-level abstraction over AWS resources to create and manage an EKS cluster easily.

    Step 2: Deploy the Helm chart

    Once you have the EKS cluster, you can deploy Helm charts to it. With Pulumi's Kubernetes provider, you can deploy Helm charts to your Kubernetes clusters. The kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart resource from Pulumi's Kubernetes provider allows you to deploy charts.

    Full Pulumi Program

    Below is the complete Pulumi program. The program assumes that you want to create a new EKS cluster for deploying your Helm chart. You can modify the program if you already have an existing cluster.

    import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; import * as aws from "@pulumi/aws"; import * as eks from "@pulumi/eks"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Step 1: Create an EKS cluster // Create an EKS cluster with the default configuration. const cluster = new eks.Cluster("my-eks-cluster", { // Specify the desired Kubernetes version version: "1.21", }); // Export the cluster's kubeconfig. export const kubeconfig = cluster.kubeconfig; // Step 2: Deploy the Helm chart // A kubeconfig is required for Pulumi to interact with the cluster. Here we create a provider with the cluster's kubeconfig. const provider = new k8s.Provider("k8s-provider", { kubeconfig: cluster.kubeconfig.apply(JSON.stringify), }); // Deploy the "redis-observability" Helm chart into the "default" namespace of the cluster. // You'll need to specify the correct repository URL for the chart and any values you want to override. // If "redis-observability" is in a private Helm registry, make sure you have access configured. const redisObservabilityChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("redis-observability", { chart: "redis-observability", version: "<CHART_VERSION>", // replace with the specific chart version you want to use fetchOpts: { repo: "https://charts.my-registry.io/", // replace with the correct Helm chart repository }, }, { provider }); // To access your cluster after the script runs, you will use the exported kubeconfig, which Pulumi outputs once the script completes.

    How to Run This Program

    • Install Pulumi and set up the AWS provider.
    • Save the above code to a file index.ts in a new Pulumi project.
    • Run pulumi up in the command line within the project directory.


    • Replace <CHART_VERSION> with the correct Helm chart version you wish to deploy.
    • Update the Helm chart repository URL https://charts.my-registry.io/ with the location where your redis-observability chart is stored.
    • If you have specific configuration values or overrides for the redis-observability, you should include them in the values section of the Chart resource.

    This program sets up an EKS cluster and deploys the redis-observability Helm chart to it, offering a complete cloud-native observability stack that is common for many production-grade Kubernetes environments.
