1. Directing Dataset Traffic to OCI Object Storage


    To direct dataset traffic to OCI Object Storage using Pulumi, we'll need to create an instance of Object Storage and then handle the necessary configurations to ensure data can be ingested and stored effectively. Object Storage in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) is a highly available, scalable, and secure solution to store and retrieve data objects.

    Below is a step-by-step plan to achieve this with Pulumi in Python:

    1. Set up a new OCI Object Storage Bucket: This will be our primary container to store data objects.
    2. Configure Object Storage Settings: Depending on requirements, we might need to set access tiers, versioning, and other storage options.
    3. Handle Data Ingestion: To get data into our bucket, we can opt for methods like pre-authenticated requests for secure, time-limited upload links.
    4. Manage Data Lifecycle: Set up policies for how data is managed over time, which could include archiving older datasets or scheduling deletion.

    The Pulumi program we are going to write will create a new bucket in OCI Object Storage and set some basic configurations. Please ensure that you've already configured your Pulumi for OCI and have the necessary credentials set.

    Here's the Pulumi program:

    import pulumi import pulumi_oci as oci # Create an OCI Object Storage bucket bucket = oci.ObjectStorage.Bucket("data-bucket", compartment_id="ocid1.compartment.oc1..exampleuniqueID", # Replace with the actual Compartment OCID name="dataset-bucket", storage_tier="Standard", # Other options: "Archive" or "InfrequentAccess" versioning="Enabled", # Enable versioning to keep a history of objects access_type="ObjectRead", # Set the type of access for the bucket, other options: NoPublicAccess, ObjectWrite auto_tiering="Disabled", # Auto-tiering automatically moves objects between performance tiers based on access patterns ) # Output the bucket's name and namespace pulumi.export("bucket_name", bucket.name) pulumi.export("bucket_namespace", bucket.namespace)


    • oci.ObjectStorage.Bucket: This resource is used to create a new bucket in the OCI Object Storage service. OCI Object Storage Bucket documentation

    • versioning="Enabled": Enabling versioning on the bucket allows you to keep multiple versions of an object in the same bucket. You can retrieve or restore a version of an object if it gets deleted or overwritten.

    • access_type="ObjectRead": This setting controls the access to the objects stored in the bucket. In this case, we're making the objects publicly readable.

    • auto_tiering="Disabled": Auto-tiering automatically moves objects to different storage tiers based on how frequently they're accessed. It's disabled here, but you can enable it based on your data access patterns.

    • pulumi.export: This function outputs the specified attribute of a resource so that you can access it outside the Pulumi program.

    Remember to replace compartment_id with your actual OCI compartment OCID. Ensure that you understand the resource model of OCI and properly configure access controls and policies for secure and efficient use.

    After you have this foundation in place, you can expand upon it depending on your specific use case, such as setting up replication policies for cross-region data redundancy or implementing lifecycle rules to transition or expire objects at defined times.
