@Shelton Thanks for the advice.
So let's say if a subscription is currently out of our budget, but may consider a subscription in the future, previously, before Hortonworks was acquired by Cloudera, lots of the HDP packages were accessible.
Now that Hortonworks got acquired by Cloudera, many of the HDP policies changed i believe, therefore making the HDP packages inaccessible unless you have a subscription.
Do you have any suggestions in regards to upgrading any hadoop components as a subscription may be currently out of our budget?
If we were to upgrade the hadoop components, would the best way is to start over and deploy and brand new cluster via open source and migrate the data from the old cluster to the new?
Any advice is much appreciated.
