Installing DataPlane
Also available as:

DataPlane Platform support requirements


The specific DataPlane Apps you plan to install into your environment might bring additional requirements. Review the App-specific documentation thoroughly to ensure you can meet the App-specific requirements. For example, depending on your choice of Apps, your cluster requirements might change. This includes (but is not limited to) a minimal HDP version, setup and configuration of Knox, and other cluster requirements.

You should review the support requirements for the DP Platform to ensure your environment meets those requirements. Additionally, you must consider various aspects of your clusters and prepare those clusters as part of your DataPlane installation in order to register the clusters with DP Platform.
