My objective is to go through the process of installing MapR M5 on a cluster of 5 servers, including all the steps that involve having to partition the hard-drive etc. I do not have access to 5 linux servers at the moment. So my question is if it is possible to rent 5 linux servers on Amazon EC2 and then follow the procedure of installing MapR on these Amazon EC2 servers. Or the only way out is for me to get physical linux servers and follow the MapR M5 installation procedure.. Thanks.
