It’s never been easier to get started with Apache Hadoop. The Hortonworks Sandbox combines 100% open-source Apache Hadoop and its data access engines (Apache Spark, Apache Hive, Apache HBase, Apache Solr, Apache Pig) with enterprise-grade Operations (Apache Ambari), Security (Apache Ranger and Apache Knox) and Governance (Apache Atlas). The Sandbox also provides tools for devOps, exploration(Ambari Views) and web notebooks development (Apache Zeppelin).
