Today I decided to download Hortonworks version of Hadoop.
Open the downloaded file in VMPlayer...
Simply open a browser on you PC, type in the URL instructed and a screen pops up like magic...
Just looking around on some of the screens, I really like the visualization of the layout and the nice look and feel.
And now to show the results...
With built in Visualizations (charts / graphs) - nice!
And feature to Export data to CSV or Excel...
And the Job Tracker shows the run query...
I really was up and running in about 15 minutes.
At this point, I tried to log into the CentOS console.
Found the Username / Password here: http://hortonworks.com/community/forums/topic/shell-login-passwords/
and we're in (root/hadoop)
did an "ls", "cd ..", and "ls" to find my bearings...
So far I like it, still need to play around in the command prompt a bit see how things are connected.
Just in case I get a new project to setup a 3 node cluster (wink, wink!).
And there you have it!
First try Hortonworks Hadoop!
Here's another version of the install from Hortonworks: http://hortonworks.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/InstallingHortonworksSandboxonWindowsUsingVMwarePlayerv2.pdf
