AWS Experience Part 6: Creating a Custom AMI
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Hi all,

Here is another installment on working in the cloud, the AWS cloud that is. Today's topic: creating a custom AMI. This may sound like as easy task. And it would have been, had AWS documentation been up to scratch. I spent lots of time messing around with this, and I finally got it to work. Here's how:

  • Launch an exiting image (I chose a Fedora 8 image). Modify the /var/www/html/index.html file to something else (thus making it "your unique AMI). I went one step further: I installed JDK 6 and MySQL on mi AMI for use at a later date.
  • Now you have to upload your private key and x509 certificate to the AMI. Here's how to do this in the terminal:
    scp -i ~/.ssh/<yourkeypair.pem> ~/.ec2/<pk-whatever.pem> ~/.ec2/<cert-whatever.pem> root@your-public-DNS:/mnt.

    Cloudera shows signs of progress

    GigaOM reported that Cloudera raised $6m Series B funding from Accel and Greylock and is now looking beyond web applications to wider enterprise adoption of Hadoop. Cloudera also announced its first certification program for Hadoop.

    Open source goes mainstream in the UK
    There have been signs of change recently with regards to open source adoption in the UK, which has traditionally lagged behind the rest of Europe and the US. CBR Magazine provided an analysis of open source in the UK

    AWS Experience Part 3: Trying Another Instance
    Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Hi all,

    Hmmmm...

    I switched on my machine this morning thinking a new day will bring new results. Nope. Same old results. As I mentioned in an earlier blog entry, I created a server instance using Fedora with LAMP, complete with MySQL. Hmmm.. Sound good? Well, it comes with MySQL 4.1. Normally an update would be a straightforward process. Since Fedora 8 doesn't come with an

    apt-get
    command, I chose to go the
    yum
    route. I tried
     yum update mysql-server
    . No dice. problems. I spent another 30 minutes or so, trying to correct the problem, but to no avail. So I decided to create a whole new server instance with Fedora 8 and no MySQL. I manually installed MySQL on the machine, by doing the following:
    • I download the MySQL sever, cient, and headers and libraries from the MySQL.com (http://mysql.com/).
      wget

    AWS Experience Part 2: Accessing the Cloud
    Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Hi all,

    Today I'll be write more about my experiences with Amazon Web Services. Before I continue, I'd like to provide some background information.

    I signed up for Amazon Web Services. I used the Fedora LAMP AMI to create a server instance. The main reason for choosing this AMI was its inclusion of MySQL and Apache, a nice little package indeed. I ran into a few problems at first. Because I am based in Europe, I am allowed to use only the EU-West region, and the default in the US-East region. The drop down list is rather small, and i took a couple of unsuccessful instances to figure out that this was the problem. When I say "unsuccessful instances," I mean that the nothing appeared in the browser when I copied the public DNS to the browser's address bar. I attached an EBS volume to the server instance and it was OK.

    Now for more on the command line.

    AWS Experience Part 1: Setting up the Tools
    Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Hi all,

    I've just been reassigned (partially) to make sense of using a MySQL database server in the cloud, namely in Amazon Web Services. I'll be blogging about my experiences. Today is part 1.

    After creating the account, I got to work. I signed up for EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud 2), Simple Storage, and EBS (storage that allows for persistence). I played around with starting an instance, terminating it, etc. Then I got started with the command line tools. This is what I did.

    • I made sure that my JAVA_HOME was set correctly in my mac: I typed
      export JAVA_HOME=/Library/Java/Home/
      in the terminal. Then I typed
      $JAVA_HOME/bin/java -version
      to confirm that the JAVA_HOME was indeed set correctly.
    • Then I made created a .ec2 directory in my home directory. I then added my private key and X.509 certificate to this directory. I also made sure
