I'd start with a clean Ubuntu server instance, install Hadoop in it and see if I can make a snapshot from it and easily instantiate new ones (maybe write a script for the changes if it's not too hard).

If you want something automatic, you can try installing Juju and hook it up to OpenStack as a provider - it has Hadoop charms. Also, this question might be of interest to you.
