1. Data Pipeline Orchestration for ML with GCP Pub/Sub


    Data pipeline orchestration for Machine Learning (ML) on Google Cloud Platform (GCP) can be implemented using various services. In this context, we'll utilize Google Cloud Pub/Sub for its messaging capabilities to create a system that can intake, process, and route data for machine learning workloads.

    Google Cloud Pub/Sub is a fully-managed real-time messaging service that allows you to send and receive messages between independent applications. In an ML pipeline, it can be used to asynchronously queue workloads, decouple services, or trigger downstream processes.

    Here's an outline of how you might set up such a pipeline:

    1. Pub/Sub Topics & Subscriptions: We'll create a Pub/Sub topic that will receive messages containing data or references to data that need to be processed by the ML model. Then, we'll create a subscription to that topic to allow our data processing service to receive and handle these messages.

    2. Data Processing Service: This component, which can be a Cloud Function or a service running on Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), will subscribe to the Pub/Sub topic, process the incoming messages, perhaps preprocess the data for the ML model, and perform inference using the model.

    3. Results: The processed results can be published to another Pub/Sub topic or stored in a service like Google Cloud Storage, BigQuery, or sent back through another Pub/Sub mechanism depending on the pipeline's output requirements.

    The Python program below depicts the creation of a Pub/Sub topic and a subscription to that topic using Pulumi. Please note that in a real-world scenario, you would also have to deploy and configure your data processing service, which is beyond the scope of this explanation:

    import pulumi import pulumi_gcp as gcp # Create a Pub/Sub topic where messages will be published. data_pipeline_topic = gcp.pubsub.Topic("data-pipeline-topic") # Create a Pub/Sub subscription to the above topic. data_pipeline_subscription = gcp.pubsub.Subscription("data-pipeline-subscription", topic=data_pipeline_topic.name, ack_deadline_seconds=20 # The time in seconds the system will wait for acknowledgement of message processing from the subscriber. ) # Export the names of the topic and the subscription. pulumi.export('data_pipeline_topic_name', data_pipeline_topic.name) pulumi.export('data_pipeline_subscription_name', data_pipeline_subscription.name)

    In the code above, we start by importing the required Pulumi modules. We then create a Pub/Sub topic named data-pipeline-topic. Following that, we define a subscription to the topic with an acknowledgment deadline, which determines how long the Pub/Sub service should wait for the message to be acknowledged by a subscriber before considering it unacknowledged.

    Finally, we export the names of the topic and subscription, which are useful for debugging and interacting with these resources outside of Pulumi.

    To implement the rest of the pipeline, such as the data processing service or storing the results, you would integrate other components of the Google Cloud Platform, such as Cloud Functions, Cloud Run, App Engine, etc., and possibly other Pub/Sub topics for forwarding the processed data.

    Remember, this is only a foundational snippet to get you started with the creation of a Pub/Sub-driven data pipeline for ML; a complete solution will involve additional GCP services and logic for processing the data.
