RapidMiner Server cloud images

RapidMiner Server cloud images are available both on the Amazon AWS Marketplace and on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. These preinstalled images include an embedded MySQL database, RapidMiner Server and the most common Extensions. From within an AWS or Azure account, these images can be fired up in minutes, using a bring-your-own-license model, with a RapidMiner license that you have already purchased, or pay-as-you-go, where the license is included and paid-for as an add-on to the AWS/Azure cost.

Launching a RapidMiner server instance is similar to any other instance in the Azure or AWS marketplaces, just select the right AMI/Image during the Launch Wizard.

Here are marketplace links for the Azure VMs

and for the Amazon AWS:

After the Instance or Virtual machine is ready, you can use RapidMiner Server in the same way as the on-premise installations and you can connect to your Remote repository from RapidMiner Studio. For details please check the How to use a Remote Repository page.

Starting the Amazon AWS RapidMiner Server AMI

Please follow these steps to start a RapidMiner Server Amazon EC2 Instance:

  1. Log in to your Amazon account and select the EC2 console.
  2. Click on the Launch Instance button.
  3. Select AWS Marketplace in the left menu and search for "RapidMiner".
  4. Select the required version of the Image (we always recommend the latest).
  5. Continue with the Launch Wizard by selecting the Instance type. We recommend using at least 7 GB of RAM for RapidMiner Server.
  6. Configure the Instance Details by selecting the networking parameters. Make sure you enable public IP or consult your network administrator about your Amazon VPC configuration.
  7. Configure Storage and Instance tags. For basic usage the default settings are enough.
  8. Check the Security group settings and ensure that ports 8080 and 1081 are open for RapidMiner Server and 22 for SSH.
  9. Finally review and launch your instance with your SSH key.

After the instance is available, continue with the following steps:

  1. Using a browser connect to the instance's port 8080. (e.g. http://public.ip:8080) or consult your network administrator about how to access your instance.
  2. Check your instance id on the EC2 web console.
  3. On the login screen please use the username admin and use the instance ID (e.g. "i-0abcde567884e6bc70") as password.
  4. If you chose a pay-as-you-go AMI, that’s all you need to do. You can already connect to it from a browser or from your RapidMiner Studio. If you chose a bring-your-own-license AMI, then you’ll be presented with a page where you need to paste your license. After that, you’ll need to restart the VM.

Starting the Microsoft Azure RapidMiner Server Image

Please follow these steps to start a RapidMiner Server Azure Virtual Machine:

  1. Log in to your Azure account and go to your Azure Portal Dashboard.
  2. Click on the Virtual Machines in the left menu and select the Add button.
  3. Search for "RapidMiner" in the Images
  4. Select the required version of the Image
  5. Continue with the Create Virtual Machine Wizard by adding the name of the Virtual Machine. Enter your user name and SSH credentials and select (or create a new) Resource Group, where your Virtual Machine will be created.
  6. Choose an instance size. We recommend using at least 7 Gb of RAM for RapidMiner Server.
  7. Configure the Instance Details by selecting the networking parameters. Make sure you enable public IP or consult your network administrator about your networking configuration. Check the Security group settings and ensure that ports 8080 and 1081 are open for RapidMiner Server and 22 for SSH.
  8. Finally review and purchase your virtual machine.

After the virtual machine is ready, continue with the following steps:

  1. Using a browser connect to the virtual machine's port 8080. (e.g. http://public.ip:8080) or consult your network administrator about how to access your instance.
  2. Check your virtual machine's name on the Azure Portal.
  3. On the login screen please use the username admin and use the name of your virtual machine as password.
  4. If you chose a pay-as-you-go AMI, that’s all you need to do. You can already connect to it from a browser or from your RapidMiner Studio. If you chose a bring-your-own-license AMI, then you’ll be presented with a page where you need to paste your license. After that, you’ll need to restart the VM.
