Subject Re: Automating Accumulo installation
Date Fri, 16 Aug 2013 15:22:41 GMT

In fact the problem of installing Accumulo and its many sub-parts installed, configured and
working properly stopped me from even attempting it. Configuring something I don't yet understand
is so unpleasant I try hard to avoid it.

Sqrrl packages their Accumulo as a VirtualBox VM with no dangling loose ends. They also provide
a version for Amazon EC2 which I'm also using. Cloudera has an even nicer installer (for Hadoop
minus Accumulo it seems) with GUIs for most sub-parts.
