Install Cloudera Cluster on AWS? x/post from r/hadoop

Install Cloudera Cluster on AWS? x/post from r/hadoop

New Contributor

I'm trying to create a 4 node Hadoop cluster on AWS using the Cloudera distribution for learning purposes.

I've done it manually (without Cloudera) and ended up spending more time just learning about Linux/Networking/Matching correct software versions etc. and less time using Hadoop/Map Reduce/Hive, which is what I really want to focus on.

I'd much rather learn these Hadoop technologies in a multi node cluster environment instead of a single node VM. I feel like I'm not really learning everything when it's just a single node. I also want to work with the Cloudera distro in particular and use HUE.

I've found videos/articles from a few years ago that reference being able to set up a Cloudera Live account and run it on AWS, however I can't find anything like that on Cloudera's website anymore.

Does anyone have advice? Can this be done relatively simply and low cost? Are there better ways to practice on a multi node cluster using Cloudera?

One option you may have missed would be the Cloudera QuickStart images to play with, see

But this is for single instance testing only.

For installing a multiple node test cluster in the cloud the following Cloudera blog articles may help you:
