interested in an AWS installation of Server 7.x

I am interested in setting up a RapidMiner Server on AWS using the free license version available for v 7.x and connecting to a MySQL database.  Has anyone attempted this yet?  I found some old posts from several years ago, but they all appeared to be using RapidMiner Server v5.  It also looks like the MySQL driver has to be installed separately (why not bundle this in with the basic server package??). @Thomas_Ott perhaps you have done something in this vein?

 

It would be very nice if there was an AMI # available for a quick and easy install that included the basic Server setup for a small Linux AWS machine.  @zprekopcsak perhaps an idea for the RapidMiner server team to create one, if they are trying to promote adoption of the Server product as part of proof of concept projects?  That would enable people to get up and running very quickly!

Hey @Telcontar120, the non-bundled MySQL driver was left out because of liscensing issues. You can use it, you can download it, but we can't include it as part of the download. As far as putting Server on AWS, I haven't dont it yet, but it can be done. Soon!

So I went ahead and did this on my own.  There isn't an AMI for RapidMiner Server (yet), but there is a detailed walkthrough of the process of installing it on AWS available in my guest blog post that RapidMiner was nice enough to host.  If other commuity members are interested they can find the details here: https://rapidminer.com/installing-rapidminer-server-aws/

Re: interested in an AWS installation of Server 7.x

this is excellent.  Thank you.  I too run RapidMiner Server on AWS EC2 (see my new public beta: http://www.genzerconsulting.com/atanga-public-beta).  A RapidMiner Server AMI would be nice; what would be NICER would be the ability to automatically update RapidMiner Server without a lot of work on the command line - perhaps similar to RapidMiner Studio?  Right now I am running RM Server 7.1 and am loathe to upgrade due to the huge amount of effort involved.

Part 2 of my post is now available on the RapidMiner blog as well, which covers remote connecting to the AWS server and setting it up properly for the installation of RapidMiner Server.
