This post explains how to install GraphLab on Amazon EC2 and how to load GraphLab from a preinstalled EC2 image.
Loading Graphlab from one of our publicly available images:
1) Follow the directions on http://graphlab.org/download.html to check out the latest available AMI. Launch the selected image using Amazon AWS Console.
NOTE: Images are available in US-EAST region.
TIP: Don't forget to allow SSH (Tcp port 22) in the default security group,
( In the AWS console go to EC2 -> Network Security -> Security Groups and verify that in the default security group (or the security group you where using)).
2) After launching the AMI instance, it is always desirable to get the latest
GraphLab using the commands:
cd graphlabapi hg pull hg update ./configure cd release make -j4
3) It is also useful to run unit testing to verify the update went fine:
cd tests/ ./runtests.sh
