IronCluster on EMR 1.0.3

I am currently using EMR with Hadoop ver 1.0.3 on a persistent cluster. I'll be leveraging ETL/ELT on HBase extensively and would like to try Syncsort.

Can I use IronCLuster on (EMR) Hadoop 1.0.3?

If not, are there any other options from SyncSort? Can I use install DMExpress-H on EC2 directly and will this support (EMR) Hadoop 1.0.3?

  • Hi Ram-

    Our integration with Hadoop and EMR, for Ironcluster and DMX-h, requires Hadoop 2. You can read more about the integration on our web site and there is also an interesting BLOG here:


    The only Hadoop distribution that supports the "backport" for MapReduce 1 at this time is Cloudera (MapR is coming soon). We can't support Amazon EMR with Hadoop 1.


    Couple of options:

    • Use EMR Hadoop 2
    • Try out with the latest releases of Cloudera of Hortonworks
    • You can download a "Test Drive" of our product and either 1) download the test drive that is a full VM with the Cloudera distribution, 2) download the Hortonworks Sandbox and instll our Test Drive on that VM. Both are available here:
