1. Distributed Database for Time-Series AI Workload Storage


    To create a distributed database for time-series AI workload storage, you would want to choose a database service that is designed to handle time-series data efficiently. Among the services provided by cloud providers, AWS Timestream and Azure Time Series Insights are specialized for time-series data workloads.

    For the sake of an example, let's choose AWS Timestream, which is a scalable, serverless time-series database service for IoT and operational applications. With Timestream, you can easily store and analyze trillions of events per day at 1/10th the cost of relational databases, and its serverless nature allows it to scale up or down to adjust to your application's demands without manual intervention.

    Below is a Pulumi program in Python that defines an AWS Timestream database and table, suitable for a distributed time-series workload. This will be a foundational infrastructure for your AI workload, capable of ingesting and querying time-series data efficiently.

    import pulumi import pulumi_aws as aws # Create a Timestream database. # This is the first step in setting up a time-series data storage, providing a container for Timestream tables. ts_database = aws.timestreamwrite.Database("aiTimeSeriesDatabase", database_name="ai_time_series_db") # Create a Timestream table. # This table will store your actual time-series data. # You provide it with a database to live in, its name, and the retention properties - # these properties define how long your data is stored in the memory and magnetic store. ts_table = aws.timestreamwrite.Table("aiTimeSeriesTable", database_name=ts_database.name, table_name="ai_time_series_table", retention_properties={ # The duration for which data must be stored in the memory store. "memory_store_retention_period_in_hours": "24", # The duration for which data must be stored in the magnetic store. "magnetic_store_retention_period_in_days": "365" }) # Export the names of the database and table. # These outputs can be used to reference the infrastructure in other parts of your system or in other Pulumi programs. pulumi.export("database_name", ts_database.database_name) pulumi.export("table_name", ts_table.table_name)

    Here's what is happening in the program:

    • We're using the AWS provider in Pulumi to interact with AWS Timestream.
    • aws.timestreamwrite.Database is the Pulumi resource that represents an AWS Timestream database. Here it is named "aiTimeSeriesDatabase", and a logical name within AWS Timestream will be "ai_time_series_db".
    • aws.timestreamwrite.Table is the resource representing a table within that database. It is named "aiTimeSeriesTable" and contains retention policies that specify how long to keep the data in memory and in long-term magnetic storage.

    Note that you will need to authenticate with AWS using your ~/.aws/credentials file or environment variables so that Pulumi can make the necessary API calls on your behalf.

    This program lays the groundwork for a robust AI time-series storage solution. You can extend it with additional configuration to adjust to your specific workload needs.
