With Early Release ebooks, you get books in their earliest form—the author's raw and unedited content as he or she writes—so you can take advantage of these technologies long before the official release of these titles. You'll also receive updates when significant changes are made, new chapters are available, and the final ebook bundle is released.

Up until recently, Hadoop deployments have existed on hardware owned and run by organizations. Now cloud service providers let customers effectively rent hardware and the associated network connectivity. But there’s a lot more to installing a Hadoop cluster in the public cloud than simply renting machines.

This practical book shows developers and systems administrators familiar with Hadoop how to install, use, and manage cloud-born clusters efficiently. You’ll learn how to architect clusters in a way that works with cloud-provider features—not just to avoid potential pitfalls, but also to take full advantage of what these services can do. You’ll also compare the Amazon, Google, and Microsoft clouds, and learn how to set up clusters in each of them.
