We present a virtualized setup of a Hadoop cluster that provides greater computing capacity with lesser resources, since a virtualized cluster requires fewer physical machines. The master node of the cluster is set up on a physical machine, and slave nodes are set up on virtual machines (VMs) that may be on a common physical machine. Hadoop configured VM images are created by cloning of VMs, which facilitates fast addition and deletion of nodes in the cluster without much overhead. Also, we… CONTINUE READING
