Provisioning an HDInsight cluster

After the storage is successfully created online, we can create an HDInsight cluster. From the Azure Management Portal, select HDInsight and click on CREATE HDINSIGHT CLUSTER. Perform the following detailed steps, which are shown in the following screenshot:

  1. Click on the Hadoop Menu option, which is used for quick creation. If you need customized settings, then you can use CUSTOM CREATE.

    Note

    HDInsight does have additional options for HBase and Storm, which we will review in Chapter 8, HDInsight 3.1 New Features.

  2. Select a unique cluster name that should be a word between 3 and 63 characters and can support letters, numbers, and hyphens only. I have selected hdind and the complete URL is hdind.azurehdinsight.net.
