Hadoop on EC2 with OpenSolaris

October 2, 2008

The OpenSolaris crew just announced you can run Hadoop AMIs on EC2 running on top of OpenSolaris. That’s just cool. I’m still not ready to abandon my Django code running on App Engine (I’ve got a post coming up on the stellar new update to Google App Engine Patch, by the way), but I’d love to play with it. Anyone else given it a go?

You can run it with:

ec2-run-instances –url https://ec2.amazonaws.com ami-2bdd3942 -k <your-keypair-name>
