Subject Re: Time to build my own cluster - advice?
Date Thu, 05 Nov 2009 18:18:15 GMT
Tim,

I have been using individual EC2, and my question really was about building
your own Hadoop cluster on that, but the others have provided the links. I
guess you are saying that I should just go ahead and do it; it's not that
hard. In other words, kick that Elastic MapReduce habit :)

Thank you,
Mark
