If its just for testing purpose you can download sandbox for virtual box from here : https://hortonworks.com/downloads/#sandbox

It will be around 10-12 GB .

IF you want to install HDP, its done via ambari , you can follow this guide for installation.for HDP installation you should have clusters.

Sandbox is a Single node ccluster which is useful for quick testing and POC.

However if you want to test the Failover (High Availability) then you will need atleast 3-4 node HDP cluster setup.
