Hortonworks provides an official Data Platform Sandbox docker image that can help you learn the Hortonworks stack. I recently setup a Hortonworks Sandbox on my macOS.
Increase Docker memory for macOS
Hortonworks Sandbox is a heavy container, with lots of components running on it. They recommend at least 8GB of RAM.
Open Docker preferences and select the Advanced tab. Increase the dedicated memory to at least 8GB of RAM or more.
Download the Hortonworks Sandbox Docker image
Download the docker image. It’s a huge one 12GB, use high bandwidth network :)
Download the Hortonworks Script
Load the sandbox image
docker load -i HDP_2_6_1_docker_image_28_07_2017_14_42_40.tar
This is a heavy task. Go get your coffee now because it will take some time to load the
After it is loaded you should see
sandbox-hdp in your
docker images list.
Update /etc/hosts file
Add the following to
127.0.0.1 localhost sandbox.hortonworks.com
Run the Hortonworks Sandbox startup script
chmod +x ./start-sandbox-hdp.sh ./start-sandbox-hdp.sh
Again this will take some time… ⏲
Access Hortonworks Sandbox
Go to http://sandbox.hortonworks.com:8888/
This Sandbox comes with a lot of components like Ambari, Ranger, Hive, Spark etc. installed and configured.
