DevOps My AI
-
Presenter: David Michels

Abstract: In the rapidly evolving landscape of machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI), automating the training, testing, and deployment of large language models is crucial for efficiency and scalability. This presentation delves into creating Gen AI CI/CD pipelines on with AWS, leveraging AWS SageMaker, AWS Bedrock, and AWS S3 services. We’ll outline the essential components of a CI/CD pipeline, and talk about how pipelining AI (especially LLMs) is different than traditional. From there, we will talk about how AWS SageMaker facilitates the development and training of large language models. AWS Bedrock’s role in establishing a secure, compliant, and scalable foundation for ML workloads is discussed, highlighting its integration with CI/CD processes. Any model training requires data so, we demonstrate how AWS S3, serves as the backbone for storing and retrieving model data and artifacts. By the end of this presentation, attendees will have an foundational understanding of implementing Generative AI CI/CD pipelines utilizing AWS services.

AWS Services: Bedrock, sagemaker, s3

Optimize AWS Glue IP addresses & Expand Network with Private NAT
-
Presenter: Sushanth Kothapally and Senthil Kamala Rathinam

Abstract: As enterprises grow, their demand for IP addresses often exceeds what their corporate network can provide. While networks are designed to tackle future needs, evolving enterprises eventually outgrow them. This often possess constraint of running multiple AWS Glue jobs in parallel that require number of database connections. To enable more connections, organizations can obtain additional IP addresses from their corporate pool, either unique or overlapping with the existing network. Overlapping IP addresses require extra network management like private NAT gateways, AWS PrivateLink, or self-managed NAT appliances to establish connectivity. This presentation discusses two strategies to scale AWS Glue jobs within IP-constrained networks:
Optimize IP address usage by right-sizing Data Processing Units, using AWS Glue Auto Scaling, and fine-tuning jobs
Expand network capacity by adding a non-routable CIDR range with a private NAT gateway.

Implementing these strategies allows companies to maximize their use of IP addresses to support more data processing workloads using AWS Glue
