1. Storing Inference Metadata with AWS DynamoDB


    AWS DynamoDB is a fully managed NoSQL database service that provides fast and predictable performance with seamless scalability. It's a suitable choice for applications that require consistent, single-digit millisecond latency at any scale, such as mobile, web, gaming, ad tech, IoT, and many other applications. In the context of machine learning, storing inference metadata in DynamoDB can be helpful for tracking and analyzing model performance over time.

    To store inference metadata with AWS DynamoDB using Pulumi, you would typically perform the following steps:

    1. Create a DynamoDB table to store the inference metadata.
    2. Define the attributes (columns) that the table will store, including a primary key that uniquely identifies each item.
    3. Optionally, define secondary indexes if you need to query the data by other attributes.
    4. Provision the table using Pulumi.

    In this example, I'll guide you through setting up a DynamoDB table using Pulumi's AWS package. We'll define a table with a simple primary key (InferenceId) and a few additional attributes to store the metadata (ModelName, InputData, InferenceResults, Timestamp).

    Here's a program that sets up such a table:

    import pulumi import pulumi_aws as aws # Create a DynamoDB table for storing inference metadata. inference_metadata_table = aws.dynamodb.Table("inferenceMetadataTable", attributes=[ # Define the attributes of the table. The 'S' stands for string type. aws.dynamodb.TableAttributeArgs( name="InferenceId", type="S", ), # You can add more attributes to store other pieces of metadata. aws.dynamodb.TableAttributeArgs( name="ModelName", type="S", ), aws.dynamodb.TableAttributeArgs( name="Timestamp", type="S", ), # ... Add other attributes as needed. ], # Specify 'InferenceId' as the primary key for the table. hash_key="InferenceId", billing_mode="PAY_PER_REQUEST", # Use on-demand billing mode. # You can enable server-side encryption with an AWS managed key. server_side_encryption={ "enabled": True, }, tags={ # Optional tags - useful for categorization and billing. "Purpose": "InferenceMetadataStorage", } ) # Output the id of the new DynamoDB table pulumi.export('inference_metadata_table_id', inference_metadata_table.id)

    This code sets up a new DynamoDB table with:

    • Primary key named InferenceId of string type to identify each inference uniquely.
    • Attributes for ModelName and Timestamp where you can store additional metadata related to the inference.
    • PAY_PER_REQUEST billing mode, which means you pay for the read/write throughput that you consume on-demand. It is a cost-effective choice for tables with unpredictable workloads.
    • Server-side encryption using the default AWS owned customer master key to help protect the data.

    Once this Pulumi program is executed successfully, it will provision the DynamoDB table in your AWS account. After creating the table, you can then use AWS SDKs to interact with DynamoDB and store or retrieve inference metadata from your applications.

    To deploy this infrastructure, make sure you have the Pulumi CLI installed and configured with your AWS account. Then, you can save this code in a file (e.g., main.py), and execute the following commands in your terminal:

    pulumi up

    This will prompt you to review the infrastructure changes and confirm them. Once confirmed, Pulumi will provision the resources as defined.
