Whether it’s HBase, Cassandra or one of the many others, you’ve probably already hears about NoSQL. Perhaps you’ve wanted to try it out, but don’t have the infrastructure or expertise to setup an elaborate clustered environment. This videos shows how to make your own NoSQL platform using infrastructure clouds such as Amazon EC2 or GoGrid.
It demonstrates how you can use Whirr to start up your own configurable cluster with just a couple of commands, and how you can integrate this into your automation for to achieve, for example, continuous testing flows. It also shows how Whirr uses jclouds for node management, and how you can easily add additional services using the underlying jclouds ComputeService interface.
