Installation Instructions for BigInsights Hadoop and Streams
Getting the Virtual Machines
You can download the virtual machines free of charge from the IBM site. You will need to register and create an IBM ID to login. You will also need Vmware Player or Vmware Fusion (Mac). For Mac users, if you don't have Vmware Fusion then you can try Virtual Box, but your mileage may vary.
