  1. Select the Okera (ODAS) Marketplace AMI
  2. Choose the t3.2xlarge instance type and press "Configure Instance Details".
  3. Choose your desired VPC and Subnet (and any other normal EC2 configuration you use).
  4. Select the IAM role created for the Okera cluster as per the prerequisites section and press "Add Storage".

  8. Ensure all the settings are correct and press "Launch".
  9. The cluster may take 30 mins - 1 hour to boot up with Okera's software fully.

Getting Started with Okera

Once the cluster has fully booted, the UI will load at the default port 8083.

Note: If you have installed within the last hour and the UI is not loading, Okera may not be fully booted up, so try again once it has been at least an hour.

Navigate to your cluster's Public or Private IPv4 DNS (depending on how you setup), with port 8083 specified. e.g

The username is okera and the password will be your instance id.

Note: Okera has a default self signed cert that will likely show up a certificate warning in your browser. You will need to click ‘ignore’ to continue to the UI. You can update the certificate later if you organization has a signed certificate.

Okera Login

You can then get started using Okera, either by adding some datasets or just exploring the Web UI.

Once your ready you can also start to customize your cluster configuration.
