Cloudera QuickStart

This set of guides describes ways to rapidly begin experimenting with Cloudera software. The first section describes how to download and use QuickStart virtual machines, which provide everything you need to try CDH, Cloudera Manager, Impala, and Cloudera Search. Subsequent sections show you how to create a new installation of Cloudera Manager 5, CDH5, and managed services on a cluster of four hosts and an unmanaged CDH pseudo cluster. Quick start installations are for demonstration and POC applications only and are not recommended for production use.
