@Emmanuel Obayi Great question!! We have something in the works for the sandbox to meet this request that's easy for users to set up. I'll report back when I have some more news within the next week, or feel free to ping me and I can provide updates.
@Emmanuel Obayi please feel free to check out our latest HDP 2.6.5 and HDF 3.1.1 Sandboxes. They are both Connected Data Architecture (CDA) ready which means that you can run both sandboxes on the same node.
