1. Multi-Tenant Data Lakes with DataStax Astra


    Multi-tenant data lakes are complex systems that allow multiple users or tenants to use the same infrastructure without accessing each other's data. With this approach, you can achieve cost efficiency, easier maintenance, and scalability. DataStax Astra is a cloud-native database as a service built on Apache Cassandra, offering scalability and flexibility for handling large volumes of data across multiple tenants.

    DataStax Astra doesn't have a direct Pulumi provider, but we can use the astra.Keyspace resource for creating keyspaces within the Astra database to separate tenant data logically. A keyspace in Cassandra is like a schema in relational databases and is used to group related tables.

    The following Pulumi program in Python shows how to create a keyspace with DataStax Astra. We'll use the pulumi_astra package to interact with Astra resources, and this example assumes that you've set up the Astra database and have the necessary configuration, such as the databaseId.

    Here's how to structure the program:

    1. Import Pulumi and the required Astra package.
    2. Declare the database ID and keyspace name.
    3. Create a new keyspace within an existing Astra database.
    4. Export the keyspace ID.

    Let's create the Pulumi program for setting up a keyspace in DataStax Astra:

    import pulumi import pulumi_astra as astra # Suppose you have already provisioned an Astra database and have its databaseId. # Replace 'your-database-id' with your actual Astra database ID. astra_database_id = 'your-database-id' # Create a new keyspace for a tenant. You can create multiple keyspaces for different tenants. # Replace 'tenant-a-keyspace' with a unique name for the new keyspace. tenant_a_keyspace = astra.Keyspace('tenant-a-keyspace', databaseId=astra_database_id, name='tenant_a') # Export the keyspace ID, so you can reference it elsewhere. pulumi.export('tenant_a_keyspace_id', tenant_a_keyspace.id)

    In this program:

    • We've used the pulumi_astra.Keyspace resource which represents a keyspace within Astra Cassandra. Astra Keyspace Documentation

    • The databaseId is the unique identifier for the Astra database you've already set up.

    • We specified name for the keyspace, which should be unique across the database and descriptive for the tenant it belongs to.

    • The pulumi.export function outputs the keyspace ID, which can then be used in other operations or outputs.

    Please replace your-database-id and tenant-a-keyspace with your actual database ID in Astra and the desired keyspace name respectively.

    If you have several tenants, you would repeat the keyspace creation process for each, ensuring that each keyspace has a unique and clear name indicating the tenant it belongs to. Keep in mind that you need the Astra database provisioned beforehand, and permissions set accordingly.

    If you have requirements for specific configurations or additional resources, including tables within the keyspaces, you would need to expand the program accordingly.

    Before running this program, ensure you have Pulumi installed, access to an Astra database, and the pulumi_astra package added to your Pulumi project.
