1. Easy tryouts for HDP

HDP offers a Virtual Sandbox environment where you can get up and running with Apache Hadoop in a simplified, pre-installed and configured environment. Note that this is a single-node virtual environment for learning and experimenting with Apache Hadoop. To deploy Hortonworks Data Platform across multiple nodes for proof-of-concept, we recommend that you use other deployment options.
