This version of the Sandbox provides you a complete HDP 2.0 environment. Your own personal single-node Hadoop cluster where you can explore the new features and enhancements of HDP 2.0, including YARN, the improvements to Hive that were delivered by the Stinger initiative, along with the updates to Hbase, Pig, and Ambari.In fact, our Sandbox has all of the most current releases of the various Apache Projects — like Hive 12, HBase 96, and Hadoop 2.2. You can see the full list of the components and their version numbers here. HDP 2.0 and the Sandbox are the only places to find these current projects, without a bunch of patches and that has been enterprise hardened, ready to go for your enterprise.
On the About Sandbox page in the Sandbox, you’ll find buttons to enable/disable Ambari and Hbase. We’ve shipped the Sandbox with these disabled to keep the memory requirements at the existing 4 Gb of physical RAM. In order to run Ambari or Hbase you’ll need to have 8Gb of of physical RAM and you’ll need to increase the memory allocation in your virtual machine to 4 Gb. If you have enough physical RAM, go ahead an increase the memory allocation to the VM and you’ll see a performance improvement.
In the Sandbox 2.0, you’ll find the navigation improved. We’ve made it easier for you to find tutorials that match your interest. The filter and tags options will find tutorials that match those criteria and you’ll also be able to navigate between tutorials.
You can download the Sandbox and get started today. You’ll find VirtualBox, VMware and HyperV images. Download now and get your Hadoop (2.0) on!
