Apache Hadoop Multi-Node Cluster Setup on Amazon EC2 Instance
This video tutorial shows how to set up a two node Hadoop cluster on Amazon EC2 instances.
Here’s what you will need
Amazon AWS Account
PuTTy Windows Client (to connect to Amazon EC2 instance)
PuTTYgen (to generate private key – this will be used in putty to connect to EC2 instance)
WinSCP (secury copy)
The Apache Hadoop project develops open-source software for reliable, scalable, distributed computing.
The Apache Hadoop software library is a framework that allows for the distributed processing of large data sets across clusters of computers using simple programming models. It is designed to scale up from single servers to thousands of machines, each offering local computation and storage. Rather than rely on hardware to deliver high-availability, the library itself is designed to detect and handle failures at the application layer, so delivering a highly-available service on top of a cluster of computers, each of which may be prone to failures.
