  • Dear Sir,

    • Hi Ram, please click through to the following link which will provide you access to the latest Hortonworks Sandbox. This is a fully self contained version of HDP in a virtual machine which can be run on your laptop. (vmware, hyperV or virtual box)

      The install guides are provided however for more information you can also find all documentation for HDP at

  • Question : Ive seen as well many demos where the user connects with excel and download from the server; is this a normal procedure? it would require lot of bandwidth… is this the way to proceed?

  • Very interesting session – You mentioned any sort of data can be stored in Hadoop… Could you please explain where the data sits physically?

    • Hi Francesco

      All data within HDP gets stored in HDFS. HDFS is the distributed filesystem that runs on commodity hardware. The data nodes in the cluster have locally attached disks which store the data physically.

  • What is the optimal size for the VM to be able to have a flawless Hadoop experience. I have downloaded the VMs though I have not yet had meaningful interactions with the system. Is there any additional software required to setup a use case if I have some raw data, some made up of tables or connections to get sql data and others in the form of GIS.

  • I have installed Hadoop in my PC. After installation i have tried to play virtual machine. Then I got a message like your system has only 2 CPUs. But virtual machine require 4 CPUs. What I have to do for this?
