Hortonworks sandbox vs HDP vd HDF

Explorer

Does the Hortonworks sandbox consist of both HDP and HDF ? Or are these 3 seperate products that can be integrated together.

I have downloaded the Apache Ambari Version 2.6.1.0, so do I have both HDP and HDF now ? or are they set of servers.

HDP and HDF are separate products and they include different set of components.

HDP Shipped components: https://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDP2/HDP-2.6.4/bk_release-notes/content/comp_versions.html

HDF Shipped Components: https://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDF3/HDF-3.1.1/bk_release-notes/content/ch_hdf_relnotes.ht...

So based on your requirement you can choose any of those distributions.

It is also possible to have the HDF components installed on an existing HDP cluster as described in : https://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDF3/HDF-3.1.1/bk_installing-hdf-on-hdp/content/upgrading_...

.

There are some types of Sandboxes available for download and use. Like HDP Sandbox & HDF Sandbox so you can shoose then based on your interest and requirement. Those different types of Sandbox Downloads can be found here: https://hortonworks.com/downloads/#sandbox

Regarding your specific query: "I have downloaded the Apache Ambari Version 2.6.1.0, so do I have both HDP and HDF now ?"

When you install ambari and then try to setup a cluster then b y default you can setup a HDP cluster because ambari already ships the HDP common-services and HDP stack information along with it's binary.

However if you want to install HDF or some other Stacks then you will have to download the required "mpacks" and then install those Mpackas to Ambari and then only you can install the services/components available as part of those mpacks.

Like: https://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDF3/HDF-3.1.1/bk_installing-hdf-on-hdp/content/ch_install...

A management pack (mpack) bundles service definitions, stack definitions, and stack add-on service definitions so they do not need to be included with the Ambari core functionality and can be updated in between major releases.

@Jay Kumar SenSharma so based on this comment "..it is also possible to have the HDF components installed on an existing HDP cluster as described in...",

I can download HDP sandbox and then download all HDF components on HDP sandbox. So now I will have HDP which has the best of both worlds ?

Yes, it is possible to download HDP sandbox and then download all HDF components on HDP sandbox.

I just came across this one the website, does this mean there is a possible combination of both soon?
