Can you write me a terraform setup script that deploys dagster services (daemon, web server, and codebase) to aws @Scout?

We don't provide custom Terraform scripts or any other specific deployment code examples beyond what is available in the documentation. However, I can guide you through the general process of deploying Dagster services to AWS based on the documentation. To deploy Dagster services to AWS, you would typically follow these steps: 1. Prepare Your Dagster Codebase: Ensure your Dagster codebase is ready for deployment. This includes all your assets, repositories, and any other necessary configurations. 2. Containerize Your Dagster Application: Create a Docker image containing your Dagster codebase. This image will be used to run your Dagster services in AWS. 3. Push Your Docker Image to a Registry: Upload your Docker image to a container registry such as Amazon Elastic Container Registry (ECR). 4. Write Terraform Configuration: Define your AWS infrastructure using Terraform. This will include resources such as: - Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances or Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) clusters to run your services. - Networking resources like VPCs, subnets, and security groups. - IAM roles and policies for permissions. - Load balancers for distributing traffic. - Databases like Amazon RDS for the Dagster event log and other storage needs. 5. Deploy Dagster Services: Use Terraform to deploy the following Dagster services: - Dagster Daemon: This service runs schedules and sensors and manages run queuing. - Dagit Web Server: The web interface for Dagster. - User Code Deployments: Your Dagster codebase that defines your assets and repositories. 6. Configure Your Services: Set up environment variables, secrets, and any other necessary configurations for your Dagster services. 7. Initialize and Apply Terraform Plan: Run
terraform init
to initialize the Terraform configuration and
terraform apply
to create the resources in AWS. Please note that the documentation does not provide a specific Terraform script for deploying Dagster to AWS. You would need to write the Terraform configuration yourself or work with someone who has experience with Terraform and AWS to create a setup that meets your specific requirements. For more detailed guidance on deploying Dagster to AWS, you can refer to the deployment guides in the documentation, which cover various deployment strategies and considerations. If you need further assistance, you might want to explore the community forums or seek help from a professional with experience in deploying applications to AWS using Terraform.
