Subject RE: Hive in EC2
Date Wed, 31 Aug 2011 20:35:06 GMT
When you launch an EMR cluster (or "job flow" in EMR terminology), it launches new EC2 instances,
optionally with an Elastic IP assigned to the cluster's master host. One does not install
EMR on existing EC2 (non-EMR) instances.

But my concern is that I cannot run the Elastic Mapreduce on specific
instances which we already own and have elastic IPs. If it is possible to do
so, then using Hive EMR should be fine enough.
