1. Scalable PostgreSQL for Machine Learning Metadata Storage.


    Creating a scalable PostgreSQL instance to store machine learning metadata involves provisioning a PostgreSQL server with the capability to scale according to workload demands. We will use Azure's scalable PostgreSQL service for this purpose, as it provides built-in high availability and automatic scaling.

    Here's what we'll do in the Pulumi program:

    1. Provision an Azure Resource Group: This will be the container for our PostgreSQL server and other related resources.
    2. Create an Azure PostgreSQL Server: This represents our database where the machine learning metadata will be stored.
    3. Configure the Server: We'll specify parameters like compute and storage resources, setting the server up for scaling and high availability to handle increasing demands.
    4. Set Up a Database: Within the Postgre SQL server instance, we will create a database that will be used to store our machine learning metadata.

    The Pulumi code below implements these steps using Python. We'll go through the details of each resource and the configuration parameters in the comments within the code.

    import pulumi from pulumi_azure_native import resources from pulumi_azure_native import dbforpostgresql as postgresql # Create an Azure Resource Group resource_group = resources.ResourceGroup('rg') # Create an Azure PostgreSQL Server that is scalable and suited for storing machine learning metadata. postgres_server = postgresql.Server( "postgresServer", resource_group_name=resource_group.name, location=resource_group.location, sku=postgresql.SkuArgs( name="B_Gen5_2", # This specifies the size for the PostgreSQL server. "Gen5" refers to the compute generation # "2" denotes the vCore count. You can scale it up based on the workload requirements. tier="Basic", # The pricing tier. "Basic" is for light workloads; consider "GeneralPurpose" or "MemoryOptimized" for heavier workloads. ), properties=postgresql.ServerPropertiesForDefaultCreateArgs( version="11", # Version of PostgreSQL to install. storage_profile=postgresql.StorageProfileArgs( backup_retention_days=7, geo_redundant_backup="Disabled", storage_mb=5120, # 5 GB of storage to start with. This can be increased as per data storage needs. ), create_mode="Default" ), administrator_login="postgresAdmin", administrator_login_password="ComplexPassword#1234", # Choose a strong, complex password. # Please note: For production-grade databases, it is recommended to use a secret manager to handle passwords. ) # Create a Database inside the PostgreSQL server for storing metadata. metadata_database = postgresql.Database( "metadataDb", resource_group_name=resource_group.name, server_name=postgres_server.name, database_name="mlmetadata", charset="UTF8", collation="English_United States.1252", ) # Export the connection string for the database, which can be used by applications to connect to the database. # DO NOT expose the password or sensitive details in production. connection_string = pulumi.Output.all(resource_group.name, postgres_server.name, metadata_database.name) \ .apply(lambda values: f"postgresql://{postgres_server.administrator_login.get()}:'ComplexPassword#1234'@" f"{values[1]}.postgres.database.azure.com:5432/{values[2]}?sslmode=require") pulumi.export('connection_string', connection_string)

    In the code above, we begin by importing the necessary Pulumi modules for Azure. Then, we define an Azure resource group as a logical container for our PostgreSQL server. Next, we declare a PostgreSQL server with a specific SKU that describes the compute and storage capability.

    We set the administrator credentials (login and password) directly in the code for simplicity, but in a production environment, you should use a secrets manager for storing sensitive information like passwords.

    Then, we create a database named mlmetadata with UTF-8 character encoding, which is commonly used for a variety of languages and data. The collation setting is chosen to match English language requirements and can be adjusted according to your local language needs.

    Finally, we construct the connection string, which can be used by applications to access the PostgreSQL server, and export it as an output of the stack. This connection string includes the necessary details to connect securely over SSL.

    Please replace placeholder values with your own desired settings, especially the administrator password, which should be secure and ideally come from a secret store. Also, consider tuning other parameters like the resource group location and the SKU size based on the expected workload and geographic requirements.
