Launch an Apache Mesos Cluster in 3 2 1

Elastic Apache Mesos is a web service that automates the creation of Apache Mesos clusters on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). It provisions EC2 instances, installs dependencies including Apache ZooKeeper and HDFS, and delivers you a cluster with all the services running.

Mesos allows you to easily share compute resources and data between frameworks like Apache Hadoop and Apache Spark.

You just pay for your EC2 instances; Elastic Apache Mesos costs you nothing, nada, zilch on top of that.

3 Choose a cluster size

1. Estimated price you will be charged in USD by Amazon EC2 after launching your cluster based on on-demand instance prices ➦. We charge you nothing, nada, $0 on top of that!

  • 2 vCPUs
  • 7.5 GiB memory
  • Ubuntu 13.10 (ami-35dbde5c)
  • Type m1.large

Your SSH public key will be added to all instances of your cluster to allow you to access them.

You'll get an email when your cluster is ready to use with details on how to access it and how to shut it down.
