1. Deploy the local-pv helm chart on AWS EKS


    Deploying a local-pv (local persistent volume) Helm chart on AWS Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) requires a few steps. We will start by creating an EKS cluster using Pulumi's eks package, which provides a higher-level abstraction and simplifies the creation and management of an EKS cluster over using the lower-level aws or aws-native packages directly.

    Once the cluster is set up, we will deploy the local-pv Helm chart into our EKS cluster. The kubernetes package's helm.v3.Chart resource will be used for this purpose, which allows us to deploy Helm charts into a Kubernetes cluster managed by Pulumi.

    Let's walk through the code:

    1. We initialize a new EKS cluster using the eks.Cluster class.
    2. We install the Helm chart for local-pv within the EKS cluster using helm.v3.Chart.

    Here is the TypeScript program:

    import * as eks from "@pulumi/eks"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Step 1: Create an EKS cluster. // Documentation: https://www.pulumi.com/registry/packages/eks/api-docs/cluster/ const cluster = new eks.Cluster("my-cluster", { desiredCapacity: 2, // Number of worker nodes minSize: 1, maxSize: 3, instanceType: "t2.medium", // Instance type of the worker nodes }); // Step 2: Deploy the local-pv Helm chart. // Documentation: https://www.pulumi.com/registry/packages/kubernetes/api-docs/helm.sh/v3/chart/ const localPvChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("local-pv", { chart: "local-pv", version: "1.0.0", // Specify the version of the Helm chart fetchOpts: { repo: "https://charts.example.com/", // Provide the repository URL hosting the local-pv chart }, }, { provider: cluster.provider }); // Export the cluster's kubeconfig. export const kubeconfig = cluster.kubeconfig;


    • EKS Cluster: We are creating an EKS cluster named my-cluster. The instance type for the worker nodes is specified as t2.medium. We have set some scaling parameters which determine the number of worker nodes that our cluster can automatically scale to.

    • Helm Chart: The localPvChart variable represents the Helm chart deployment. The chart property specifies the name of the chart, and version specifies the version of the chart we want to deploy. Replace the repo with the URL of the Helm repository where the local-pv chart is located.

    • Export: The export keyword is used to export the kubeconfig of the created EKS cluster. With this kubeconfig, you can interact with your cluster using kubectl to manage Kubernetes resources.

    To run this program:

    1. Save the code to a file called index.ts.
    2. Ensure you have Pulumi CLI installed and AWS credentials configured.
    3. Run pulumi up to create the cluster and deploy the chart.

    Pulumi will perform the deployment, and you will see the status of resources being created. Once done, you can use the exported kubeconfig to interact with your EKS cluster.

    Please replace placeholder values such as the Helm chart version and repository URL with actual values according to the local-pv chart you are planning to deploy.
