1. Deploy the hive-storage helm chart on AWS EKS


    To deploy the hive-storage Helm chart on AWS EKS using Pulumi, we'll need to follow a few steps:

    1. Set up an Amazon EKS Cluster: We use the EKS package to create and manage the EKS cluster.
    2. Configure the EKS Cluster: We configure the EKS cluster with necessary parameters like node group settings.
    3. Deploy the Helm Chart: With the cluster set up, we can use the Kubernetes package to deploy the hive-storage Helm chart.

    Before we start, it's important to understand that Helm charts are packages of pre-configured Kubernetes resources. To deploy a Helm chart on EKS, we need an EKS cluster running. Pulumi's EKS package simplifies creating an EKS cluster.

    Below is the TypeScript program that accomplishes the task:

    import * as eks from '@pulumi/eks'; import * as k8s from '@pulumi/kubernetes'; // Step 1: Create an EKS cluster // The `eks.Cluster` resource uses our current AWS credentials to deploy an EKS cluster. const cluster = new eks.Cluster("my-cluster", { desiredCapacity: 2, // desired number of instances minSize: 1, maxSize: 3, storageClasses: "gp2" // default storage class // You can specify other options based on your requirements. // Refer to the EKS package docs: https://www.pulumi.com/registry/packages/eks/api-docs/cluster/ }); // Step 2: Use the cluster's kubeconfig to interact with the cluster // This output will allow us to interact with our EKS cluster using `kubectl` as well as the Kubernetes provider in Pulumi. const kubeconfig = cluster.kubeconfig.apply(JSON.stringify); // Configure the Kubernetes provider with the kubeconfig from the created EKS cluster const k8sProvider = new k8s.Provider("k8s-provider", { kubeconfig: kubeconfig }); // Step 3: Deploy the `hive-storage` helm chart to the EKS cluster // In this step, you need the repository URL for the `hive-storage` chart. Helm charts can be found in different Helm repositories. // Replace `REPO_URL` with the URL of the repository containing `hive-storage`. // Replace `<CHART_VERSION>` with the specific version you want to deploy, if you have one in mind. const chart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("hive-storage-chart", { repo: "REPO_URL", // Replace with the actual repository URL chart: "hive-storage", version: "<CHART_VERSION>", // Replace with the actual chart version, if necessary // If the Helm chart requires any values, you would specify them here, like: // values: { // setting1: value1, // setting2: value2, // } }, { provider: k8sProvider }); // Export the kubeconfig export const kubeConfigOutput = kubeconfig; // Export the chart resource name export const chartResourceName = chart.metadata.name;

    This Pulumi TypeScript program creates an Amazon EKS cluster and deploys the hive-storage Helm chart on it. Here's what each step accomplishes:

    • Step 1: We create an EKS cluster using new eks.Cluster. We specify the desired, minimum, and maximum size of the node group, and the default storage class we want to use.

    • Step 2: We grab the kubeconfig file from our created cluster, which will let us interact with our EKS cluster. We also set up the Pulumi Kubernetes provider with this kubeconfig, so Pulumi can manage resources in this EKS cluster.

    • Step 3: We deploy the hive-storage Helm chart. We need the repository URL for the Helm chart and optionally the version of the chart. The values object is where you’d specify any configurations that the chart allows. The new k8s.helm.v3.Chart resource is where we define our Helm chart resource to be deployed.

    Please replace "REPO_URL" and "<CHART_VERSION>" with the corresponding repository URL and chart version. If you don't know these values, you can find them in the Helm chart documentation or the place where the chart is hosted, such as Artifact Hub or a specific project's documentation.

    Exported values:

    • kubeConfigOutput: The kubeconfig of the created cluster, which you can use to connect to the Kubernetes cluster with kubectl or other Kubernetes management tools.
    • chartResourceName: The name of the deployed Helm chart as managed by Pulumi, which you can use to reference it in subsequent updates.

    Assuming you have Pulumi and AWS CLI already set up, you would run pulumi up to initiate the deployment after saving this program into a index.ts file in a Pulumi project directory. Remember to install the required NPM packages (@pulumi/eks and @pulumi/kubernetes) with npm install before running the command.
