1. Deploy the vector-element helm chart on AWS EKS


    To deploy the vector-element Helm chart on AWS EKS with Pulumi, we will follow these steps:

    1. Create an Amazon EKS cluster by using the awsx package, which provides higher-level abstractions that make it easier to create and manage EKS clusters.
    2. Deploy the vector-element Helm chart to the EKS cluster using the kubernetes package, which allows you to deploy Helm charts in a Pulumi program.

    Here's a complete program that accomplishes these steps:

    import * as eks from '@pulumi/eks'; import * as awsx from '@pulumi/awsx'; import * as k8s from '@pulumi/kubernetes'; // Create an EKS cluster with the default configuration. // This will create all the required resources for an EKS cluster. const cluster = new eks.Cluster('vector-element-cluster', {}); // Once the cluster is created, we can use the kubeconfig provided by the cluster to configure our Kubernetes provider. const k8sProvider = new k8s.Provider('k8s-provider', { kubeconfig: cluster.kubeconfig.apply(JSON.stringify), }); // Now we can deploy the vector-element Helm chart to our EKS cluster using the Kubernetes provider we just configured. const vectorElementChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart('vector-element-chart', { chart: 'vector-element', // Replace `<YOUR-HELM-REPO>` with the Helm repo URL where the vector-element chart is located. // Replace `<YOUR-CHART-VERSION>` with the chart version you want to deploy. // If the chart requires additional values, add them in the `values` field. // For example: // values: { // service: { // type: 'ClusterIP', // }, // }, // If 'vector-element' chart's repository is not added by default, you need to add a repo option like below // repo: '<YOUR-CHART-REPOSITORY>', version: '<YOUR-CHART-VERSION>', }, { provider: k8sProvider }); // Export the cluster's kubeconfig and the service name of the vector-element deployment. export const kubeconfig = cluster.kubeconfig; export const serviceName = vectorElementChart.getResource('v1/Service', 'vector-element-service-name');


    • We use the @pulumi/eks package to create an EKS cluster. The eks.Cluster class creates and manages an EKS cluster in AWS, along with its underlying resources like the VPC, subnets, and security groups.
    • The kubeconfig property of the EKS cluster is used to interact with the cluster using kubectl or any Kubernetes API client. We pass this to the Kubernetes provider, so Pulumi knows how to communicate with our new EKS cluster.
    • The @pulumi/kubernetes package is used to deploy Helm charts on Kubernetes. We instantiate a k8s.helm.v3.Chart to deploy the vector-element chart to our EKS cluster.
    • You may need to specify additional configuration options for the Helm chart under the values property. This depends on the specifics of the Helm chart being deployed.
    • The version property specifies the version of the Helm chart you wish to deploy. Replace <YOUR-CHART-VERSION> with the actual version number.
    • The repo property would be necessary if the Helm chart you're deploying is not in the default Helm chart repositories that Pulumi knows about. Replace <YOUR-HELM-REPO> with the actual repository URL.
    • We export the kubeconfig and service name as stack outputs, which will be displayed after deployment. This information can be used to access the Kubernetes cluster and the deployed Helm chart.

    Remember to replace placeholder values such as <YOUR-CHART-VERSION> and <YOUR-HELM-REPO> with actual values for your helm chart. If the vector-element helm chart requires certain configurations through values, adjust the values object in the Chart resource to match those requirements.
