Install a Hama cluster using Whirr

Apache Whirr provides a Cloud-neutral way to run a properly-configured system quickly through libraries, common service API, smart defaults, and command line tool. Currently it supports various Cloud services e.g., Hadoop, HBase, Hama, Cassandra, and ZooKeeper. Let's see how it is simple to install Hama cluster using Whirr.

The following commands install Whirr and start a 5 node Hama cluster on Amazon EC2 in 5 minutes or less.

% curl -O
% tar zxf whirr-0.7.0.tar.gz; cd whirr-0.7.0

% ssh-keygen -t rsa -P '' -f ~/.ssh/id_rsa_whirr

% bin/whirr launch-cluster --config recipes/ --private -key-file ~/.ssh/id_rsa_whirr

Upon success you should see imok echoed to the console, indicating that Hama is running.

Oh... finished. :)
Now you can run an BSP examples as below:

edward@domU-12-31-39-0C-7D-41:/usr/local/hama-0.3.0-incubating$ bin/hama jar hama-examples-0.3.0-incubating.jar 
An example program must be given as the first argument.
