Lab 11 – Cloud Execution for Real

Part I: Executing WordCount on AWS

So far, we have only simulated cloud computing using a (pseudo) cluster of one node in our VMs. Note that this mode of execution is used by developers to test and debug their code. However, once you actually want to execute the program on a real cluster you need to either have one or use an online service. We will use Amazon Elastic MapReduce (EMR) to explore the execution of our word count program on a real cloud.

Final Project: Milestone 4

Don’t forget to demo your cloud execution to the¬†instructor/TA any time during the lab session.
