1. Deploy the gnocchi helm chart on AWS EKS


    To deploy the Gnocchi Helm chart on an AWS Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) cluster with Pulumi, you'll need to follow these steps:

    1. Set up an EKS cluster.
    2. Configure kubectl to connect to the EKS cluster.
    3. Use Pulumi with the kubernetes package to deploy the Helm chart to the cluster.

    Below you will find a Pulumi program that defines an EKS cluster and deploys the Gnocchi Helm chart. The program is written in TypeScript.

    First, install the necessary Pulumi packages by running the following commands:

    pulumi plugin install resource aws 6.13.3 pulumi plugin install resource kubernetes 4.4.0 npm install @pulumi/aws@6.13.3 npm install @pulumi/eks@1.0.3 npm install @pulumi/kubernetes@4.4.0

    Now you can write the Pulumi program as follows:

    import * as aws from "@pulumi/aws"; import * as eks from "@pulumi/eks"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Create an EKS cluster. const cluster = new eks.Cluster("my-cluster", { // Define your cluster's configuration here, such as desired instance types, node counts, IAM roles, etc. }); // Once the cluster is set up, we can configure kubectl to connect to it by using the kubeconfig. const kubeconfig = cluster.kubeconfig.apply(JSON.stringify); // Create a provider instance using the cluster's kubeconfig. const provider = new k8s.Provider("k8s-provider", { kubeconfig: kubeconfig, }); // Use the provider to deploy the Gnocchi Helm chart. const chart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("gnocchi", { chart: "gnocchi", version: "<chart version>", // specify the chart version // If the chart requires additional value overrides, specify them here. // values: { // ... // }, }, { provider: provider }); // Export the cluster's kubeconfig and the Helm chart's status. export const kubeconfigOutput = kubeconfig; export const chartStatus = chart.status;

    What this code does:

    • It initializes an EKS cluster with the default settings. You'll want to customize the cluster settings like instance types and node counts according to your workload requirements.

    • It defines a kubectl provider which allows Pulumi to interact with the EKS cluster using the generated kubeconfig.

    • It deploys the Gnocchi Helm chart to the EKS cluster using Pulumi's Helm Chart resource. You'll need to specify the Helm chart's version and any configurations it might require under the values argument.

    Run the Pulumi program by executing pulumi up in the same directory as this file, which will provision the EKS cluster and deploy the given Helm chart.

    Please replace <chart version> with the actual version of the Helm chart you wish to deploy.

    This program assumes you have already set up AWS credentials for Pulumi to use. Additionally, it will use the default AWS region for the provider setup. If you need to set the AWS region or use more specific settings for AWS and EKS, you can adjust the aws.provider and pass it to the EKS cluster and Helm chart accordingly.

    Remember, deploying a Kubernetes cluster and workloads on it can incur costs on AWS; make sure to manage resources accordingly to avoid unexpected charges.
