Free Resource

Hortonworks Sandbox for HDP and HDF is your chance to get started on learning, developing, testing and trying out new features. Each download comes preconfigured with interactive tutorials, sample data and developments from the Apache community.

HDP 2.6 is an open-source release of the Hadoop platform based on ODPi with only Apache components. It is easy to install and is packed with new features and upgrades. It's time to install HDP 2.6. HDP is free and open source, but for enterprises, you will want paid support. For students, developers, and those learning, this is completely free for you to run as a Sandbox or to install your own little cluster on Raspberry Pis, on a few big desktops, or on any cloud. The more RAM and CPUs you have, the happier you will be — but one machine with 64G of RAM will do very well.
