1. AI-Powered Content Discovery with AWS OpenSearch Domain


    To create an AI-Powered Content Discovery system using AWS OpenSearch (formerly known as ElasticSearch), you'll need to deploy an OpenSearch Domain on AWS. This domain will serve as the central search engine that can index and search your content.

    Here's what we'll do to set up an AI-powered content discovery using AWS OpenSearch with Pulumi:

    1. Import the necessary Pulumi AWS SDK.
    2. Create an OpenSearch Domain.
    3. Configure the domain settings according to your requirements, such as instance type and count, EBS volume settings, access policies, etc.
    4. Optionally, enable encryption, node-to-node encryption, and other security features.
    5. Set up access policies to control who can access the OpenSearch domain.
    6. (Optional) Integrate with other AWS services as needed, for example adding a Lambda function that ingests content into the OpenSearch domain.

    Below is a Pulumi program written in Python that illustrates these steps:

    import pulumi import pulumi_aws as aws # Create an AWS OpenSearch Domain. # This is the core of the AI-powered content discovery system. opensearch_domain = aws.opensearch.Domain("content-discovery-domain", engine_version="OpenSearch_1.0", # Specify the OpenSearch version you wish to use. cluster_config=aws.opensearch.DomainClusterConfigArgs( instance_type="r5.large.search", # Choose an instance type suitable for your use case. instance_count=3, # Number of instances to handle the search load. ), ebs_options=aws.opensearch.DomainEbsOptionsArgs( ebs_enabled=True, volume_size=10, # Size of the EBS volumes in GB. Adjust as necessary. ), node_to_node_encryption=aws.opensearch.DomainNodeToNodeEncryptionArgs( enabled=True # Enable encryption between nodes for enhanced security. ), encrypt_at_rest=aws.opensearch.DomainEncryptAtRestOptionsArgs( enabled=True # Enable encryption at rest for stored data. ), access_policies="""{ "Version": "2012-10-17", "Statement": [{ "Effect": "Allow", "Principal": { "AWS": "*" # WARNING: This allows access to everyone. Replace with your AWS account ID or proper ARN for restricted access. }, "Action": "es:*", "Resource": "*" }] }""", advanced_options={ "rest.action.multi.allow_explicit_index": "true" # Advanced options for OpenSearch, can be adjusted based on requirements. } ) # Export the OpenSearch Domain's endpoint, which can be used to interact with the domain via APIs and ingestion mechanisms. pulumi.export("domain_endpoint", opensearch_domain.endpoint)


    • pulumi_aws.opensearch.Domain is the resource used to create and configure an AWS OpenSearch (formerly ElasticSearch) domain. The domain acts as your search engine for content discovery.

    • engine_version specifies the version of OpenSearch you want to deploy. It's crucial to choose a version that supports the features you need and is compatible with your applications.

    • cluster_config includes parameters such as instance_type and instance_count used to define the size and scale of your search cluster.

    • ebs_options allows you to specify the EBS storage configuration attached to your instances for indexing and storing data.

    • node_to_node_encryption and encrypt_at_rest are security settings that enable encryption between nodes and for data at rest, respectively.

    • access_policies defines who can access the OpenSearch domain. In this example, it’s configured to allow open access, which is not recommended. You should use an IAM policy tailored to your security requirements.

    • Finally, we export the domain endpoint which clients and applications can use to interact with the OpenSearch cluster for indexing and querying content.

    This Pulumi program gives you a foundational OpenSearch cluster on AWS, upon which you can build your AI-powered content discovery system. You may want to add additional configurations, integrate with data pipelines, or implement ingestion mechanisms depending on your specific use case.
