HDP on Linux – Installation Forum

hdp or sandbox

  • #23791


    I am new to Hadoop and wish to learn Hadoop on my windows machine. On the hortonworks site, I see two download buttons, one for HDP and other for Sandbox. Which one am I supposed to download?

    I also realize that I will need a separate VMWare download, so I have already installed that. Please advise.
