Recently I discovered a low-cost VPS service. So I decided to create a small lab (not so powerfull) to demonstrate/use the power of R/Python/spark(not yet) toolbox.
I set up an instance
Cloud Sandbox Large with
ubuntu 14.04 which has:
- 1 core
- 4 GB RAM
- 30 GB SSD
- 1 TB Bandwidth*
This is sufficient to run R/python.
Once the instance is set-up, login via
ssh. Before the configuration, update & upgrade the system in first place.
sudo apt-get update
PS. Server configuration & dns redicrection is not documented here
