Subject Re: Spark GCE Script

Very cool! Have you thought about sending this as a pull request? We’d be happy to maintain
it inside Spark, though it might be interesting to find a single Python package that can manage
clusters across both EC2 and GCE.

in the google cloud, sets up the network, adds a 500GB empty disk to all machines, generate
the ssh keys on master and transfer it to all slaves and install java and downloads and configures
Spark/Shark/Hadoop. Also it starts the shark server automatically. Currently the version is
0.9.1 but I'm happy to add/support more versions if anyone is interested.
