Combine HDP and HDF

Explorer

I am just curious as to the reason the options in HDP and HDF cant be the same. Specifically, why cant i simply make nodes to support the HDF model and HDP model within the same cluster?

HI,

with HDF3.0 and Ambari 2.5.1 , we can install HDF to an existing HDP cluster. Please have a look

Thanks,

So why not create a sandbox (and tutorials) for either HDP (only) or HDP+HDF (combined)? The HDF sandbox isn't even useful for the HDF tutorials - since it lacks HDFS, HBASE, Superset, Druid, etc. The HDF sandbox seems to be defective as a learning vehicle. The crippled/limited HDF-only sandbox doesn't seem suited to it's purpose. What am I missing?
