Alternatives

In this project we use cloudera Virtual Machine that comes with a lot of software preinstalled. A possible alternative is to use a docker image with bigtop , a comprehensive packaging, testing, and configuration of the leading open source big data components.

See more informations on bigtop project homepage/wiki and give a try one of stable docker image available.

Download

Go to cloudera website,

click on Download section,
click on QuickStart VMs section,
and then download VM for VirtualBox.

OR download directly from command line $ wget https://downloads.cloudera.com/demo_vm/virtualbox/cloudera-quickstart-vm-5.4.2-0-virtualbox.zip


Install VitualBox

We will use virtual box to execute the virtual machine.

Go to virtualbox website,
download the latest version,
and then install VirtualBox.

Set-up VirtualBox machine

  1. Unzip the archive you had download from cloudera website

  2. Start VirtualBox application, click on "File" and then click on "Import appliance ..."
    Import appliance

  3. Choose file from cloudera unzipped folder and then click on "Next"
    Import appliance select file

  4. Click on "import"

    I suggest to set: CPU = 2 and at least 8GB of RAM.

    Import appliance select file

  5. Now we change some settings in order to have better performance, click with the right mouse button on Cloudera quickstart
    Change settings

  6. Go to "Display" settings and set Video Memory to 128MB
    Change settings video memory
