The Hadoop Quick Start Services Package is a pre-deined services engagement to install and conigure Hadoop and transfer knowledge to your organization. A Hortonworks Certiied Professional will complete the work over consecutive days. A typical engagement takes ive or fewer days to complete.


  • Deploy your Hadoop Data Platform cluster in one week 
  • Gain knowledge to help your team run your Hortonworks Data Platform cluster optimally within a modern data architecture 
  • Apply best practices and expertise to quickly gain value from your Hortonworks Data Platform cluster.

Project Steps 

Below is a list of steps to be performed in a typical Hadoop Quick Start project:

  • Architecture review 
  • Discuss key points that will dictate deployment decisions 
  • Determine software layout to each server 
  • Discuss sizing and data requirements. Pre-installation 
  • Determine installation type 
  • Validate environment readiness 
  • Install Ambari agents. Hadoop installation and deployment 
  • Use Ambari to deploy to the agreed upon architecture. Hadoop high level overview 
  • Provide overview of each subsystem 
  • Ensure smoke test worked on each subsystem 
  • Shutdown and restart all services. Hadoop cluster tuning 
  • Conigure cluster parameters based on hardware specification 
  • Run benchmarking tools for establishing an initial baseline. High availability 
  • Conigure HA Name Node 
  • Conigure HA Resource Manager 
  • Test HA Name Node and HA Resource Manager. Cluster management 
  • Review add/remove nodes/services. Hadoop conigurations backup 
  • Backup important site xml iles Backup Ambari server configurations 
  • Backup Ambari agent conigurations 
  • Backup default Databases used by the cluster 
  • Backup Hive meta store. Cluster monitoring 
  • Provide Ambari alert overview
