Apache Hadoop on Your PC: Cloudera’s CDH4 Virtual Machine

Today ZDNet has very helpfully published a guide to downloading, configuring, and using Cloudera’s Demo VM for CDH4 (available in three flavors, but in this case the VMware version). As the author, Andrew Brust, explains, the VM contains a “pre-built, training-appropriate, 1-node Apache Hadoop cluster” (on top of CentOS). Perhaps most important for boot-strappers, it’s free.

You can download the VM here - and there is a Hadoop tutorial available here. The combo will go a long way toward jump-starting explorations. Thanks, ZDNet!
