1. Deploy the pmm-server helm chart on Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)


    To deploy the pmm-server Helm chart on an Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) cluster using Pulumi, we will follow these steps:

    1. Create an AKS cluster: We need a Kubernetes cluster where we can deploy our Helm chart. An AKS cluster is a managed container service provided by Azure that simplifies running Kubernetes.

    2. Install the Helm chart: Once we have our Kubernetes cluster, we can use Pulumi to deploy the pmm-server Helm chart. Helm charts are packages of pre-configured Kubernetes resources that can be deployed as a unit.

    3. Configure the deployment: We may need to supply certain configurations specific to the pmm-server Helm chart, such as resource limits or the number of replicas.

    Let's go through the Pulumi program which will implement this deployment in TypeScript:

    import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; import * as azure from "@pulumi/azure"; import * as azuread from "@pulumi/azuread"; // Create an Azure Resource Group const resourceGroup = new azure.core.ResourceGroup("aksResourceGroup", { location: "East US", }); // Create an Azure AD application for the AKS cluster const app = new azuread.Application("aks"); // Create a Service Principal for the AKS cluster const sp = new azuread.ServicePrincipal("aksSp", { applicationId: app.applicationId }); // Create the Service Principal's password const spPassword = new azuread.ServicePrincipalPassword("aksSpPassword", { servicePrincipalId: sp.id, endDate: "2099-01-01T00:00:00Z", }); // Create the AKS cluster const cluster = new azure.containerservice.KubernetesCluster("aksCluster", { resourceGroupName: resourceGroup.name, defaultNodePool: { name: "aksagentpool", nodeCount: 2, vmSize: "Standard_DS2_v2", }, dnsPrefix: "aksk8s", servicePrincipal: { clientId: app.applicationId, clientSecret: spPassword.value, }, // Get access to the k8s cluster credentials // to use it with k8s provider afterwards }); // Export the kubeconfig export const kubeconfig = cluster.kubeConfigRaw; // Using Pulumi's Kubernetes provider, we can deploy the Helm chart on our AKS cluster. const provider = new k8s.Provider("k8sProvider", { kubeconfig: cluster.kubeConfigRaw, }); // Deploy the pmm-server Helm chart const pmmServerChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart( "pmm-server", { chart: "pmm-server", // Replace this with the correct repository and chart name for pmm-server fetchOpts: { repo: "https://your-helm-chart-repository-url", }, // You may need to add additional settings here based on the specifics of the pmm-server chart }, { provider } ); // Export the Helm chart deployment name export const helmDeploymentName = pmmServerChart.status.name;

    Here's a breakdown of what this Pulumi program does:

    • Firstly, we import the required Pulumi modules.
    • We create a new resource group for our AKS cluster in the designated location.
    • We then set up Azure Active Directory (AD) elements: an application and a service principal, which AKS uses to interact with other Azure services securely.
    • Subsequently, we create a Kubernetes Cluster in Azure with two nodes. You can adjust the vmSize and nodeCount based on your workload requirements.
    • We extract the raw Kubernetes configuration from the AKS cluster, which allows the Pulumi Kubernetes provider to communicate with our cluster.
    • Finally, we define a Chart resource, which represents the pmm-server Helm chart. Note that you need to replace https://your-helm-chart-repository-url with the actual repository URL for the pmm-server chart.

    Once you deploy this program using Pulumi, it will provision an AKS cluster and deploy the pmm-server Helm chart to it. If the pmm-server chart requires any specific settings, you will need to add these to the Chart resource.

    Keep in mind that the specified repository URL and chart name ('pmm-server') should be replaced with the actual Helm chart details from the official Helm chart repository or the one that hosts the pmm-server chart.

    Lastly, we export the kubeconfig and Helm deployment name so that you can easily access and manage your Kubernetes cluster and Helm chart deployment.
