AWS instance for single-node HPCC

Questions or comments related to Cloud Computing and the HPCC Systems Instant Cloud for AWS

Wed May 09, 2018 5:39 pm Change Time Zone

I want to set up an inexpensive HPCC instance in AWS just for use in learning ECL. Can anyone tell me the minimum requirements? I tried installing a single-node HPCC cluster on a free instance with Red Hat Linux on a t2 micro machine with 1 vCPU, 1 GB RAM and 10 GB storage, and of course it failed. I don't know what needs to be changed - probably everything, but by how much? If the minimum is unknown, can anyone tell me the AWS specs for any relatively small single-node cluster that does work? Thanks for your help.

The simplest way to do this is to use the "Instant Cloud" button on this page: https://hpccsystems.com/try-now.

Hi Richard,

Thanks for your response.

Yes, I actually discovered that option right after I posted this topic. However, I tried it with my personal (paid) AWS account and it failed. I sent the log files to info@hpccsystems.com two days ago, but haven't yet received a response. Is that the correct procedure to get help?

A more complicated method is to use what is in the repository: https://github.com/tlhumphrey2/EasyFastHPCCoAWS. But, if you know how to use aws, it isn't very hard.
