1. Persistent Storage Configuration for AI Workspaces


    Persistent storage in the context of AI workspaces typically refers to the ability to store data that remains available even after your AI applications or models are restarted or redeployed. This is crucial for AI workloads where training data, models, parameters, and other artifacts need to be stored securely and accessed quickly.

    In cloud environments, persistent storage is often provided through cloud storage services. For instance, if you are using AWS for your AI workspaces, you might use services like Amazon S3 for object storage, Amazon EFS for file storage, or Amazon RDS for relational database storage. Similarly, Azure and Google Cloud provide their own sets of storage services.

    When configuring persistent storage through Pulumi, you would typically define resources such as storage accounts, buckets, file systems, or databases depending on your cloud provider and services of choice. Pulumi will then manage the provisioning and configuration of these resources in an automated fashion.

    Below is an illustrative Python program using Pulumi to configure an S3 bucket for persistent storage on AWS. This bucket could be used to store various data for an AI workspace, like datasets, models, and training results:

    import pulumi import pulumi_aws as aws # Create an S3 bucket to store AI workspace data. # The S3 service offers high durability storage which makes it suitable for # storing important data such as AI models and datasets. ai_data_bucket = aws.s3.Bucket("aiDataBucket", # Ensuring the bucket is versioned allows you to keep a version history of your files, which is # important for data integrity and recovery. versioning=aws.s3.BucketVersioningArgs( enabled=True, ), # Enable server-side encryption to enhance the security of the stored data. server_side_encryption_configuration=aws.s3.BucketServerSideEncryptionConfigurationArgs( rule=aws.s3.BucketServerSideEncryptionConfigurationRuleArgs( apply_server_side_encryption_by_default=aws.s3.BucketServerSideEncryptionConfigurationRuleApplyServerSideEncryptionByDefaultArgs( sse_algorithm="AES256", ), ), ), ) # Export the name of the bucket to access it later. pulumi.export("bucket_name", ai_data_bucket.bucket)

    Here's a breakdown of what's happening in this Pulumi program:

    1. Import Pulumi libraries: This program begins by importing the required Pulumi modules for Python. In this case, the pulumi module for general Pulumi infrastructure and pulumi_aws for AWS-specific resources.

    2. Create an S3 Bucket: A new AWS S3 bucket named aiDataBucket is defined. S3 buckets are a good choice for storing files and are accessed over the Internet. These can store datasets, model files, and other relevant AI workspace data.

    3. Bucket Versioning: Enables versioning on the S3 bucket, which is very useful for data protection and recovery, as it keeps the history of object changes.

    4. Server-Side Encryption: Specifies the use of server-side encryption for the bucket to securely store data. Using AES256 encryption ensures that data is encrypted at rest within the bucket.

    5. Export Bucket Name: The bucket's name is exported. In Pulumi, exporting a value means it will be displayed as output when the Pulumi program is applied. This is useful for referencing the bucket in other parts of your infrastructure or in other Pulumi programs.

    Keep in mind that this program assumes that you have already configured your Pulumi environment with the necessary AWS credentials. Pulumi uses these credentials to provision your infrastructure on AWS. Also, remember to install the Pulumi AWS package using pip if you haven't done so already (pip install pulumi_aws).
