Hadoop Time

It’s finally time for me to look into Hadoop a little more closely.

I cloned the Hadoop 2.7.3 repo and built it without too much difficulty.  I even got the daemon running locally in single node mode.  After running through a few of the examples, etc., I wondered what Amazon Web Services had to offer as far as running a Hadoop cluster goes.  That’s when I discovered Amazon EMR.  After looking into the documentation – which is as excellent as I expected from the Amazon folks – I decided I would run through their example and incur the $1.05 or so it would cost to bring up a cluster and play with it.  Hopefully another post will be forthcoming on the experience…
