Allow labs to be done on cloud instead of VMware images
It would be great if I can perform hands-on-labs for Hadoop related courses on the cloud rather than have to download huge VMware images.

please help me in getting permission to execute commands in HIVE and other application so that i can explore more with my learning. I don't think i can perform analysis on data with only having the access to HDFS.
Please help me.. plz plz plz...

Totally agree about a more flexible solution regarding lab; I generally use DC/OS in a dockerized context on a single VM or on an instance in a cloud account; mesos or yarn are great solution all included, it's very easy to install a complete big data test environment and learn the basics in a small docker context, or in a vagrant sandbox; VMware solutions should be more focused on a single virtual machine containing the whole testing framework in containers, since we're not working on performance but better on experimenting technologies.
When we are practicing big data , should be BIG to try out everything :)
..Off-course they should be on cloud.
I second the idea. Can we have a Cloud Lab option?
I fully agree. Virtual machines require very recent computers with plenty of RAM.
