Introduction to the Hortonworks Data Platform: Using Hadoop to reveal the value in your Big Data

Hadoop® allows you to gain insight from massive amounts of structured and unstructured data quickly and without significant investment. Hadoop is designed to run on commodity hardware and can scale up or down without system interruption.
Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) is powered by 100% Apache Hadoop and works across Windows, Linux, As-A-Service (Microsoft HDInsight) or In-Cloud (e.g. Rackspace).
In this session, we’ll give an overview of the Hortonworks Data Platform distribution of Hadoop through the use of the ‘Sandbox’ virtual environment and how it can be used to learn and prototype. Sandbox is a full version of HDP running as a single-node cluster so you can get up and running in 15 minutes! Bring along your laptop and work along with the presentation – but if you prefer, just sit back, watch, and learn how to use the Hortonworks sandbox to get up and running with Hadoop.
Prior to the session it would be useful if you have already downloaded the Sandbox ( http://hortonworks.com/products/hortonworks-sandbox/) but we’ll bring along some USB keys too. You’ll need Hyper-V, VirtualBox or VMWare installed in order to run Sandbox, and a beefy laptop.
We’ll also be on hand for a deeper discussion on any and all topics related to Hadoop and HDW.
