1. Provisioned IOPS EBS for Latency-Sensitive AI Applications


    To provision an EBS (Elastic Block Store) volume with Provisioned IOPS (Input/Output Operations Per Second) on AWS using Pulumi, you'll want to use the aws.ebs.Volume resource. This kind of volume is designed to meet the needs of latency-sensitive workloads, such as AI applications, where consistent and high IOPS are required.

    The aws.ebs.Volume resource allows you to create an EBS volume and specify its details like size, type, and IOPS. For latency-sensitive applications, you would typically choose the io1 or io2 volume types as they support Provisioned IOPS and are suitable for workloads that require high throughputs like databases, big data processing engines, etc.

    Here's an example program that provisions an EBS volume with Provisioned IOPS on AWS:

    import pulumi import pulumi_aws as aws # Create a new EBS volume with provisioned IOPS provisioned_iops_ebs_volume = aws.ebs.Volume("ProvisionedIopsEbsVolume", # The availability zone where the EBS volume will be created. availability_zone="us-west-2a", # The size of the EBS volume in gigabytes (GB). size=100, # The type of EBS volume. 'io1' for previous generation or 'io2' for latest generation. type="io2", # The number of IOPS to provision for the EBS volume. Higher IOPS typically means higher performance. iops=10000, # An optional tag to identify the EBS volume. tags={ "Name": "ProvisionedIopsEbsVolume" } ) # Export the EBS volume ID so it can be easily identified in the AWS Console or used with other resources or outputs. pulumi.export("ebs_volume_id", provisioned_iops_ebs_volume.id)

    In this program:

    • We import the required Pulumi modules for Python.
    • We create an instance of aws.ebs.Volume with the name ProvisionedIopsEbsVolume.
    • We specify the availability_zone where the EBS volume will be located for redundancy purposes.
    • We set the size to 100GB, but you should adjust this based on the actual requirements of your AI application.
    • We specify the type of the volume as io2 for the latest generation of Provisioned IOPS SSD volumes.
    • We set iops to 10,000, which means that the EBS volume will be provisioned with 10,000 IOPS. Fine-tune this number based on the performance requirements and budget considerations for your application.
    • We add a tag with the key Name and the value ProvisionedIopsEbsVolume for easier identification and management.
    • Finally, we use pulumi.export to output the EBS volume ID, which acknowledges the creation of the resource and allows for easy retrieval of the volume ID for use in other operations or for record-keeping.

    When this Pulumi program is run, it will provision an EBS volume with Provisioned IOPS, which should meet the performance demands of latency-sensitive AI applications.
