Over MapR sandbox i was looking for a simple solution out of cloud (meaning connectivity and little cost) to play (learning purpose) with a little Hadoop cluster.
A really nice one :
It let in a chain scripted way :
- Through Vagrant create, configure 3 VirtualBox VM (cpu, RAM, ports configuration, ...)
- Through Ansible configure them as hadoop node (jdk install, ...)
- Once done you have under virtual box 1 hadoop master node and 2 data nodes ready to run MapReduce stuff. So nice !!!!
To me, was also a way to discover Vagrant and Ansible that let integrates VM product (VirtualBox, VMWare, ...)
Here are two introduction to those technologies
Next way trying to adapt it to MapR ?
