Cloudera didn’t stop supporting Hadoop, CDP 7 is currently supported. It’s not quite dead yet.

Hi @Sainath90 ,

Do you mean to install HDP sandbox (Hortonworks data platform for hadoop ) in your mac?

Please refer to below tutorials:

https://www.cloudera.com/tutorials/getting-started-with-hdp-sandbox.html

It has virtual box / vmware / docker versions to choose. I would recommend you to install docker version as it is easy to deploy / remove / stop / start.

I have installed docker version successfully in my mac with 16GB RAM, and mine is Intel core not M1 core, but I believe the docker will work in M1.

Please note the prerequisites is minimum 10 GB RAM dedicated to the virtual machine. 

Below is the docker version tutorial.

Hi Will, 

Apologies for my super delayed response. 

Thank you for your answer. 

Unfortunately, my M1 mac is having 8 GB RAM and it can't be upgradable. 

It seems I can't learn Hadoop in M1 mac. 

I could have dig deep before getting this useless laptop. 

 

Thanks,

Sainath

Virtual Box just released a beta version that will run on mac m1/m2 !!

Hi Sainath,

If you're looking to learn Hadoop take a look at Stackable (https://stackable.tech/en/). It doesn't ship with all of the components from Cloudera/Hortonworks, but this also means it has a smaller RAM footprint. I've built ant tested ARM versions of the containers and run it natively on my M1 MacBook.

If you can find one of the old quick start VMs it *might* work, but you will need to run it under x86_64 emulation and it will be horribly slow.

Cheers,

Jim

also in other news aka bad news... 

In 2021, Cloudera’s CEO declared that it was the “definite end to the Hadoop era.”  Its final Hadoop release, Cloudera 6.3, goes end of life in March 2022 XD
