A set of libraries for running applications on cloud services. Apache Whirr can be used to run CDH clusters on services such as Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2). A working cluster starts immediately when the appropriate command is issued; you do not need to install the CDH packages in the cloud or do any configuration first. This is ideal for running temporary Hadoop clusters as proof-of-concept or training exercises. The cluster and all its data can be destroyed with a single command when it is no longer needed.
