1. Time-Series Data Management for ML on Bigtable


    To manage time-series data for Machine Learning (ML) on Google Cloud Bigtable using Pulumi, we will follow these steps:

    1. Setting up a Bigtable Instance: We will create a new Google Cloud Bigtable instance, which will serve as our database for storing time-series data. Bigtable is a fully managed, scalable NoSQL database service for large analytical and operational workloads. For ML scenarios, you'd typically use it for its high throughput and scalability, as it can handle massive amounts of data with low latency.

    2. Creating a Bigtable Table: Once the instance is deployed, we'll create a table within this instance. A table in Bigtable is made up of rows and columns, and the intersection of a row and a column is a cell. Each cell can contain multiple versions of the same data, making it very suitable for time-series data.

    3. Defining Column Families: For efficient management, we will define column families inside our table. Column families group together various columns within a Bigtable table. You will typically store columns that are accessed together under the same column family.

    4. Managing IAM Policies: Additionally, we'll set up Identity and Access Management (IAM) policies for the Bigtable resources. IAM policies will define who (or what) can access or modify our Bigtable resources, which is crucial for maintaining the integrity and privacy of the data used in ML applications.

    Below is a Pulumi program in Python that performs the aforementioned steps to manage time-series data for ML on Bigtable. The program assumes that you have already configured the Pulumi CLI with the appropriate credentials to access Google Cloud.

    import pulumi import pulumi_gcp as gcp # Step 1: Create a new Bigtable instance bigtable_instance = gcp.bigtable.Instance("ml-time-series-instance", display_name="ML Time Series Data Instance", instance_type="PRODUCTION", # Use 'DEVELOPMENT' for non-production setups labels={"env": "production", "purpose": "time-series-ml"} ) # Step 2: Create a Bigtable table within the instance bigtable_table = gcp.bigtable.Table("ml-time-series-table", instance_name=bigtable_instance.name, column_families=[ {"name": "ts-data"}, # A column family to store time-series data ] ) # Step 3: Define IAM roles for the Bigtable instance bigtable_iam_policy = gcp.bigtable.InstanceIamPolicy("ml-time-series-instance-iam", instance=bigtable_instance.name, policy_data=pulumi.Output.all(bigtable_instance.name).apply(lambda name: """ { "bindings": [ { "role": "roles/bigtable.user", "members": [ "user:example-user@example.com" ] }, { "role": "roles/bigtable.reader", "members": [ "serviceAccount:example-service-account@example.iam.gserviceaccount.com" ] } ] } """) ) # Export the Bigtable instance name and table name for reference pulumi.export('bigtable_instance_name', bigtable_instance.name) pulumi.export('bigtable_table_name', bigtable_table.name)


    1. Bigtable Instance: We create an instance ml-time-series-instance with a display name and a label indicating that it is for production use and specifically for time-series data with ML applications.

    2. Bigtable Table: Within the created Bigtable instance, we create a table named ml-time-series-table. It has a column family ts-data in which we will store our time series data.

    3. IAM Policy: We apply an IAM policy to the Bigtable instance via InstanceIamPolicy. This policy grants the bigtable.user role to a sample user and the bigtable.reader role to a sample service account. This is a demonstration of how you might control access to your Bigtable resources.

    Make sure to tailor the roles and members of the IAM policy to your organization's access control requirements.

    Once this Pulumi program is executed, you will have a Bigtable instance and a table with appropriate access controls, ready to ingest and manage time-series data for your ML workloads. Remember, this code is directly deployable, but you should replace the IAM policy bindings with members specific to your Google Cloud environment.
