Nginx Server Using Compute Engine

View Code Deploy

Starting point for building the Pulumi nginx server sample in Google Cloud Platform. This example deploys two GCP virtual machines:

Running the App

  1. Create a new stack:

    $ pulumi stack init gcp-instance-nginx
  2. Create a Python virtualenv, activate it, and install dependencies:

    This installs the dependent packages needed for our Pulumi program.

    $ python3 -m venv venv
    $ source venv/bin/activate
    $ pip3 install -r requirements.txt
  3. Configure the project:

    $ export GOOGLE_PROJECT=YOURPROJECTID; export GOOGLE_REGION=asia-east1; export GOOGLE_ZONE=asia-east1-a;
    $ export GOOGLE_CREDENTIALS=YOURGCPCREDENTIALS
  4. Run pulumi up to preview and deploy changes:

    ```bash $ pulumi up Previewing update (dev): Type Name Plan

    • pulumi:pulumi:Stack gcp-instance-nginx-dev create
    • ├─ gcp:compute:Address poc create
    • ├─ gcp:compute:Network poc create
    • ├─ gcp:compute:Address poc-container-instance create
    • ├─ gcp:compute:Firewall poc create
    • ├─ gcp:compute:Instance poc create
    • └─ gcp:compute:Instance poc-container-instance create

    Resources: + 7 to create

    Do you want to perform this update? yes Updating (dev): Type Name Status

    + ├─ gcp:compute:Firewall poc created
    + ├─ gcp:compute:Instance poc created
    + └─ gcp:compute:Instance poc-container-instance created

    Outputs: container_instance_external_ip: “34.66.98.237” container_instance_name : “poc-container-instance-11dddc1” instance_external_ip : “35.192.222.243” instance_name : “poc-4897b20”

    Resources: + 7 created

    Duration: 59s ```

  5. Curl the HTTP server:

    $ curl $(pulumi stack output instance_external_ip)

    • ├─ gcp:compute:Instance poc delete

  7. Destroy the stack:

    $ pulumi stack rm
    This will permanently remove the 'gcp-instance-nginx' stack!
    Please confirm that this is what you'd like to do by typing ("gcp-instance-nginx"): gcp-instance-nginx
    Stack 'gcp-instance-nginx' has been removed!
