Securely connect to Linux instances running in a private VPC Create a Cluster with Instance Fleets or Uniform Instance Groups When you create a cluster and specify the configuration of the master node, core nodes, and task nodes, you have two configuration options. You can use instance fleets or uniform instance groups . The configuration option you choose applies to all nodes, it applies for the lifetime of the cluster, and instance fleets and instance groups cannot coexist in a cluster. The instance fleets configuration is available in Amazon EMR version 4.8.0 and later, excluding 5.0.x versions. You can use the EMR console, the AWS CLI, or the EMR API to create clusters with either configuration. When you use the create-cluster command from the AWS CLI, you use either the --instance- fleets parameters to create the cluster using instance fleets or, alternatively, you use the -- instance-groups parameters to create it using uniform instance groups. The same is true using the EMR API. You use either the InstanceGroups configuration to specify an array of InstanceGroupConfig objects, or you use the InstanceFleets configuration to specify an array of InstanceFleetConfig objects. 120

Amazon EMR Management Guide Configure Instance Fleets or Instance Groups In the EMR console, if you use the default Quick Options settings when you create a cluster, Amazon EMR applies the uniform instance groups configuration to the cluster and uses On-Demand Instances. To use Spot Instances with uniform instance groups, or to configure instance fleets and other customizations, choose Advanced Options . Tip To quickly and easily replicate a cluster you have already created, Amazon EMR gives you two options in the console. You can clone the cluster or generate a create cluster CLI command. First, choose Cluster list and then choose the cluster you want to replicate. Choose AWS CLI export to have Amazon EMR generate the equivalent create cluster CLI command for the cluster, which you can then copy and paste. Choose the Clone button to have Amazon EMR replicate your console setup. Amazon EMR presents you with the last step of the Advanced Options to confirm the cluster's configuration. You can either choose Create cluster to create the new cluster (with the same name and a different cluster ID), or you can choose Previous to go back and change settings. Instance Fleets The instance fleets configuration offers the widest variety of provisioning options for EC2 instances. Each node type has a single instance fleet, and the task instance fleet is optional. For each instance fleet, you specify up to five instance types, which can be provisioned as On-Demand and Spot Instances. For the core and task instance fleets, you assign a target capacity for On-Demand Instances, and another for Spot Instances. Amazon EMR chooses any mix of the five instance types to fulfill the target capacities, provisioning both On-Demand and Spot Instances. For the master node type, Amazon EMR chooses

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
