@Shankar P In AWS you can really exercise the latest release. With the sandbox you have only limited resources on your laptop but in the cloud you can easily spin up test clusters in different configurations.

Start by creating a Hortonworks cloud controller host that has a GUI where you can fill out a form and spin up a new cluster.

Check out this article for an example of how to use cloud break controller on AWS:

@Shankar P

Following @cduby you can always create a single-node cluster like a sandbox.
