Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) Cluster

View Code Deploy

Stands up an Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) cluster.

Prerequisite

  1. Install Pulumi
  2. Install .NET Core 3.1+
  3. Install Azure CLI

Configure the environment:

$ pulumi config set azure:location westeurope
$ az login

Deploying the App (short version)

To make it easier to try out you can use the available Makefile, like:

$ make deploy

This will build the project and run pulumi up -y. If you haven’t created a stack you will be prompted to do so.

When the deploy is finished you can export the kubernetes config by running

$ make exportconfig

With the config exported you can now test to access the kubernetes cluster

$ KUBECONFIG=./kubeconfig.yaml kubectl get nodes

If you want to cleanup when you are done you can run

$ make destroy
$ make rmstack

To list all make targets run

$ make help

The Makefile also works as documentation on what commands you need to run to deploy the application.

Deploying the app (native version)

If you don’t have make installed you will have to run the “native” commands. To deploy you run

$ pulumi up --yes

This will prompt you to create a stack if you haven’t done so already. When the deploy is ready you can export the kubernetes config with

$ pulumi stack output kubeconfig --show-secrets > kubeconfig.yaml

and then test the deployment with

$ KUBECONFIG=./kubeconfig.yaml kubectl get nodes

If you want to cleanup the cloud resources when you are done you can run

$ pulumi destroy -y
$ pulumi stack rm -y
