September 28

Elastic MapReduce (Lab, 10:00 – 12:00)

Try out Amazon Elastic MapReduce (EMR), Amazon’s hosted and managed Hadoop service. EMR is a fast and easy way to jump into big data analysis.

AWS 101 (Lab, 3:00 – 4:30)

Walk through the basics of Amazon’s Elastic Computer Cluster (EC2). Launch and configure a basic web server, and if you have time, make another one and cluster them behind an Elastic Load Balancer (ELB) to create a high-availability website.


Our September 28 labs will be held in room 1009 of the Mechanical Engineering Lab (which is different from the Mechanical Engineering Building). Please register to reserve your spot. Computers in the lab will be available for use, or you may bring a laptop if you prefer.
