I recently started working on Amazon services, and currently started knowing Amazon EMR. I am more or less familiar with openstack. So, I have a doubt to be clarified. In openstack we have controller, compute and cinder. Can some1 please tell me the equivalents in using Amazon EMR. Like the storage in EMR is S3 and storage in openstack is Cinder. So whats for compute and controller. I know they are servers supported by amazon, but can some1 please put it in words.

Thanks a ton.

Compute- Nova Storage S3 - Swift, Cinder EMR - Sahara: Thanks.

You may want to read the Getting Started pages on OpenStack website to understand what services are provided by OpenStack. Specifically for an equivalent of Elastic Map Reduce (EMR) you may want to look at the project currently known as Savanna.

You can also layer on top of a OS image running in OpenStack hadoop, casandra or what ever you desire. We have a few customers that are running big data apps on top of OpenStack, they migrated over from AWS.
