1. GitLab CI/CD for Automated Machine Learning Pipelines


    To set up GitLab CI/CD for automated machine learning pipelines, you would typically start by creating a .gitlab-ci.yml file in your GitLab repository to define your CI/CD pipeline. For machine learning pipelines, we can use GitLab's CI/CD to automate tasks such as data preprocessing, model training, evaluation, and deployment.

    Here's a typical Pulumi program outline in Python that can help you accomplish this:

    1. Project Environment Configuration: We define a project environment in GitLab to represent the deployment targets like staging or production.
    2. GitLab Instance Cluster: Optionally, if you require a Kubernetes cluster associated with your GitLab instance for deploying your machine learning services, this can be set up.
    3. Machine Learning Code Container (Azure): We can automate the setup of a machine learning workspace and associated code containers using Azure as our cloud provider.
    4. Release and Versioning: We can use GitLab's release link feature to track different versions and deployments of our ML models.

    Below I’ll guide you through the Python code using Pulumi with GitLab and Azure Native to set up your CI/CD pipeline for machine learning.

    import pulumi import pulumi_gitlab as gitlab import pulumi_azure_native as azure_native # Configure a GitLab environment for the machine learning project # This represents a stage in the development lifecycle, such as 'staging' or 'production'. ml_project_env = gitlab.ProjectEnvironment("ml-project-env", project="your_project_id", # Replace with your GitLab project ID name="production", externalUrl="https://production.example.com" # The external URL for the environment ) # Register an Azure Machine Learning workspace as a code container ml_workspace = azure_native.machinelearningservices.Workspace("ml-workspace", resource_group_name="your_resource_group_name", # Replace with your Azure Resource Group name workspace_name="ml-workspace" ) # Add a Code Container within the Machine Learning Workspace # This is where you store code, scripts, and notebooks. code_container = azure_native.machinelearningservices.CodeContainer("code-container", name="my-code-container", workspace_name=ml_workspace.name, resource_group_name=ml_workspace.resource_group_name ) # Associate a Kubernetes cluster with the GitLab instance (Optional) # This is required if you're deploying machine learning services on Kubernetes. # Here, Kubernetes interacts with the GitLab instance to automate deployment processes. gitlab_instance_cluster = gitlab.InstanceCluster("gitlab-instance-cluster", name="my-k8s-cluster", kubernetesApiUrl="https://kubernetes.example.com", # The API endpoint for your K8s cluster kubernetesToken="kubectl-token", # Secret token to authenticate with your K8s cluster # Additional properties may be required depending on your setup ) # Create a release link in GitLab to track deployed models and their versions ml_release_link = gitlab.ReleaseLink("ml-release-link", project="your_project_id", # Replace with your GitLab project ID tagName="v1.0.0", name="Model Release v1.0.0", url="https://model-releases.example.com/v1.0.0.tar.gz" # URL to the model tarball ) # Export the environment URL and other important attributes pulumi.export("environment_url", ml_project_env.externalUrl) pulumi.export("code_container_name", code_container.name) pulumi.export("k8s_cluster_endpoint", gitlab_instance_cluster.kubernetesApiUrl) pulumi.export("model_release_url", ml_release_link.url)

    This program sets up the initial infrastructure required for a GitLab CI/CD pipeline tailored for a machine learning use case. The script defines resources such as a project environment in GitLab, and a workspace with a code container in Azure Machine Learning Services. You will need to customize the placeholders like "your_project_id", "your_resource_group_name", "https://kubernetes.example.com", and other similar values to match your actual project details.

    Additionally, this is just the infrastructure setup. The actual CI/CD pipeline would be defined in the .gitlab-ci.yml file within your repository, where you would specify the jobs, scripts, and commands required to train and deploy your machine learning models, which interact with the infrastructure set up by this Pulumi script.
