Building an R Hadoop System - RDataMining.com: R and Data Mining This page shows how to build an R Hadoop system, and presents the steps to set up my first R Hadoop system in single-node mode on Mac OS X. After reading documents and tutorials on MapReduce and Hadoop and playing with RHadoop for about 2 weeks, finally I have built my first R Hadoop system and successfully run some R examples on it. Here I’d like to share my experience and steps to achieve that. Hopefully it will make it easier to try RHadoop for R users who are new to Hadoop.
