How to get going with Hortonworks HDP 2.6.4?



I have a fresh Ubuntu VM and I like to install the Hortonworks HDP 2.6.4. You must get this a lot, but I am a student and like to try out docker/sandbox, Kafka, Hadoop and all of the applications and tools that come with the bundle. Can you help me get started with where to download and how to install the HDP 2.6.4?



HI David,

Hortonwork HDP Sandbox is the best way to start.

You can download the Sandbox from below link:

It also has very good Tutorials for you to learn step by step.

I suggest you get started with the deployment guide to learn how to install and deploy sandbox on VM of your choice (VirtualBox, VMWare, Docker, Azure). Then take a look at the Hadoop Tutorial - Getting started with HDP tutorial.
