1. Deploy the minio-standalone helm chart on Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE)


    To accomplish your goal of deploying the minIO standalone Helm chart on Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), we will create a Pulumi program in TypeScript. This program will perform the following steps:

    1. Provision a GKE cluster using GCP's container.Cluster resource.
    2. Deploy the MinIO Helm chart to the provisioned GKE cluster.

    Let's break down the process:

    First, you'd need to set up a new GKE cluster. We use gcp.container.Cluster to define a Kubernetes cluster.

    Next, once the cluster is available, you can deploy applications using Helm charts. Pulumi has a resource kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart for this purpose, which allows deploying a Helm chart within a Kubernetes cluster.

    Here's the Pulumi TypeScript program that performs both steps:

    import * as pulumi from '@pulumi/pulumi'; import * as gcp from '@pulumi/gcp'; import * as k8s from '@pulumi/kubernetes'; // Initialize GCP Config const config = new pulumi.Config('gcp'); const project = config.require('project'); const zone = config.require('zone'); // Create a GKE cluster const cluster = new gcp.container.Cluster('gke-cluster', { initialNodeCount: 2, nodeVersion: 'latest', minMasterVersion: 'latest', project: project, location: zone, }); // Export the Kubeconfig export const kubeconfig = pulumi. all([cluster.name, cluster.endpoint, cluster.masterAuth]). apply(([name, endpoint, masterAuth]) => { const context = `${project}_${zone}_${name}`; return `apiVersion: v1 clusters: - cluster: certificate-authority-data: ${masterAuth.clusterCaCertificate} server: https://${endpoint} name: ${context} contexts: - context: cluster: ${context} user: ${context} name: ${context} current-context: ${context} kind: Config preferences: {} users: - name: ${context} user: auth-provider: config: access-token: ${masterAuth.token} cmd-args: config config-helper --format=json cmd-path: gcloud expiry-key: '{.credential.token_expiry}' token-key: '{.credential.access_token}' name: gcp `; }); // The following command can be used to obtain the GKE credentials to use kubectl to interface with your cluster. // pulumi stack output kubeconfig > kubeconfig.yaml // You can make kubectl use this file as follows: // export KUBECONFIG=./kubeconfig.yaml // Create a provider for the above cluster const clusterProvider = new k8s.Provider('gke-k8s', { kubeconfig: kubeconfig, }); // Deploy MinIO Helm Chart const minio = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart('minio', { chart: 'minio', version: '8.0.10', // specify the version of the Helm chart namespace: 'default', fetchOpts:{ repo: "https://helm.min.io/", // MinIO Helm Chart repository }, values: { accessKey: 'your-minio-access-key', // replace with your values or generate them secretKey: 'your-minio-secret-key', // replace with your values or generate them resources: { requests: { memory: "2Gi", cpu: "2" } }, persistence: { size: "10Gi" } } }, { provider: clusterProvider }); // Export the MinIO IP address to access the MinIO web interface or REST API. It might take a couple of minutes to be reachable. export const minioIp = minio.getResourceProperty('v1/Service', 'minio', 'status').apply(status => status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].ip);
    • This program starts by importing the necessary modules for Pulumi, GCP, and Kubernetes.
    • We define our GCP project and zone, then create a GKE cluster using those values.
    • We export the Kubeconfig which can be used with kubectl to interact with your new GKE cluster.
    • We create a Kubernetes Provider which tells Pulumi how to communicate with the GKE cluster.
    • We deploy the MinIO Helm chart to the default namespace using k8s.helm.v3.Chart.
      • Make sure you replace 'your-minio-access-key' and 'your-minio-secret-key' with the actual credentials you want to use for MinIO. These should be kept secret and not exposed.
    • Finally, we export the IP address of the MinIO service, which will allow you to access the MinIO web interface once it's set up.

    Remember to run npm install @pulumi/pulumi @pulumi/gcp @pulumi/kubernetes to install the necessary packages for this Pulumi program if it's a new project.
