Trying to deploy HDP in AWS. Do I have to create cluster using EC2 instances? There are HDP AMI to use with Cloud Formation as well. Can you give some guidance for best practice on deploying an HDP cluster in AWS?
I would recommend using Cloudbreak to provision a cluster on AWS. It is simple, intuitive and fast.
Cloudbreak uses Ambari blueprints, you can customize them or use the ones that come out of the box.
