Subject Re: Questions from a newbie to Hadoop

You should also clarify for the group:

Do you want to make a virtual machine to run a pseudo-distributed Hadoop
cluster on?


Do you want to install Hadoop directly onto the Vista machine and run it

If the former, you should be able to set up a VM just fine with a Linux
version of your choice - we use CentOS for that sort of thing here - and
set up P-D mode on it, just by using VirtualBox.

If the latter...

You make want to invest in some extra RAM - no, I'm kidding. :-)
HortonWorks has the stable Windows builds as Arpit has already directed you

You could also consider the Amazon and Microsoft Azure cloud versions of
Hadoop, if you can afford to pay for a few cycles every month. They're
pretty affordable, and those Amazon $100 gift cards for EC2 are popular
giveaway items at trade shows and whatnot...
