Ensemble meets Hadoop on the cloud


So you wanted to play with hadoop to crunch on some big-data problems, except that, well getting a hadoop cluster up and running in not exactly a one minute thing! Let me show you how to make it "a one minute thing" using Ensemble! Since Ensemble now has formulas for creating hadoop master and slave nodes, spinning up a hadoop cluster could not be easier! Check this video out

If you can't see the embedded video, here's a direct link

Yep that's how simple it is! If you want to scale-out the cluster, you only need to ask Ensemble to do it for you:
$ ensemble add-unit hadoop-slave

So is this easier than configuring a hadoop cluster manually? Leave me a comment, let me know your thoughts! Also let me know what you'd like to see deployed next with Ensemble
