Quickly Provision Your Hadoop Clusters Based on Your Needs and Budget
With Google Compute Engine and the MapR Distribution, you can quickly provision Hadoop clusters on demand and benefit from the flexibility, agility and scalability of a cloud-based Hadoop solution:

  • Scale Flexibility: Provision only the amount of resources you need with elastic clusters that scale up or down to meet your data processing needs.
  • Speed and Performance: Launch clusters quickly, easily adjust cluster configuration and leverage world-record performance from MapR for the best ROI.
  • No upfront investment and low ongoing costs: only pay for what you use.

It’s Easy to Install MapR on Google Cloud PlatformMapR has made available a simple set of scripts leveraging Google Cloud utilities (gcutil) to deploy standard clusters in a matter of minutes. Simply download the git archive to your system

  1. git clone and then deploy the cluster
  2. cd gce
  3. ./ --cluster GCEtest --mapr-version 4.0.2 --config-file 4node_yarn.lst \ --image centos-6 --machine-type n1-standard-4 —persistent-disks 1x256

You have complete control over the cluster services (using the —config-file examples and the different instance types and storage capacity. The above command is a simple example for a 4-node YARN cluster with 1 TB of total persistent storage, which is an ideal size for evaluating the MapR Distribution including Hadoop.
