Quickly Launch A Hama Cluster In Cloud Using Whirr

The following commands install Whirr and start a 5 node Hama cluster on Amazon EC2 in 5 minutes or less.

% curl -O http://www.apache.org/dist/whirr/whirr-0.x.0/whirr-0.x.0.tar.gz
% tar zxf whirr-0.x.0.tar.gz; cd whirr-0.x.0

% ssh-keygen -t rsa -P '' -f ~/.ssh/id_rsa_whirr

% bin/whirr launch-cluster --config recipes/hama-ec2.properties --private -key-file ~/.ssh/id_rsa_whirr

Upon success you should see imok echoed to the console, indicating that ZooKeeper is running.
