With the emergence of high-performance computing instances in the cloud, massive scale computations have become available to technically every organization. Digital libraries typically employ a data-intensive infrastructure, but given the resources, advanced services based on data and text mining could be developed. A fundamental issue is the ease of development and integration of such services. We demonstrate the feasibility by providing a case study on a visual machine learning algorithm with MapReduce running in the cloud in a small cluster.
