My blood recently turned from green to blue (after the Hortonworks-Cloudera merger) and I couldn't be more excited to play with new toys. What I am particularly excited about is Cloudera Data Science Workbench. But, like in everything I do, I am very lazy. So here is a quick tutorial to install Altus Director, and use it to deploy a CDH 5.15 + CDSW cluster.
You can follow the bootstrapping of the cluster both on command line or in the Director interface; once done, you can connect to Cloudera Manager using: http://your_manager_instance_ip:7180/
Step 5: Configure CDSW domain with your IP
Cloudera Data Science Workbench uses DNS. The correct approach is to setup a wildcard DNS record is required, as described here.
However, for testing purposes I used nip.io. The only parameter to change is the Cloudera Data Science Workbench Domain, from cdsw.my-domain.com as the conf file sets it up to, to cdsw.[YOUR_AWS_PUBLIC_IP].nip.io, as depicted below:
Restart the CDSW service, then you should be able to access CDSW by clicking on the CDSW Web UI link. Register for a new account and you will have access to CDSW:
