Install HDP 2.4.2 on my Dual Core, 8GB RAM Windows 10 laptop ? Is there a download available

Explorer

Hi,

I am gathering info on setting up a HDP environment on my laptop. I want to run my Tableau reports using Spark and Hadoop.

Is it possible to setup HDP 2.4.2 on my Win 10 laptop? Is there a download available with some documentation?

PS: I DON'T intend to install the Sandbox.

Best Regards

Hi @Devpriyo Bhattacharya,

You cannot install HDP natively on Windows 10. You can, however, run HDP on your Windows 10 laptop via Docker or virtual machines but I expect the behavior to be very unpredictable. You are going to be *very* resource constrained and you will likely experience occasional component failures and/or slow response time.

That said, typically I would recommend that you leverage the dockerized sandbox for this situation. However, if you wish to go through the process of a customized installation then you can take the whole thing for a test drive using Docker for Windows. To do this you will need to do the following:

  • Download and install Docker for Windows
  • Launch a CentOS 7 container with appropriate ports opened - most importantly 8080 for Ambari and 10000 for HiveServer2 - you may realize that you need others open later for various UIs and connectivity (e.g., 50070 for the HDFS UI)
  • Connect to the CentOS 7 container and run through the standard Ambari installation process to install your custom single-node HDP installation. I recommend installing the very minimum number of components due to your resource limitation.

This will get you a single-node HDP installation running on your laptop that you can use for basic functionality testing. It will be similar to the Sandbox with the exception being that you have hand-selected the components that you wish to install.

I dont think you can download it directly onto Windows, your only option is a virtual machine but you would need 8GB of RAM for the virtual machine alone
