Big Data Gurus Message Board › setting up hadoop environment on your laptop
San Francisco, CA
few people have asked about instructions on setting up hadoop on your laptop.
Here are the choices:
1) preferred: get a hadoop VM from Cloudera or HortonWorks
this is a pre-packaged VM with every thing you need. Just download and start the VM.
most painless way to get hadoop going
2) installing Hadoop natively on your laptop (mac, linux)
this is second choice, a little more involved.
follow this tutorial : http://www.michael-no...
3) rent a hadoop cluster on EC2
real 4 node-cluster for 6 hours, around $50.
you can share the cluster with some body else to minimize costs. I use these for my hadoop training classes. if you need this, drop me a line and I will connect you.
In addition to Hadoop, also install following:
b) java 6 SDK
c) ruby or python (either one, used for scripts)
d) [optional] git if you want pull files from github
