Must have for practicing and perfecting hadoop. To setup in PC you need to have a very high end configuration and setup will be pseudo node setup.. For better understanding I recomend CloudxLab

...

They are great. They take care of all the Big Data technologies (Hadoop, Spark, Hive, etc.) so you do not have to worry about installing and running them correclty on your pc. Plus, they have a fantastic customer support. Even when I have had problems debugging my own programs, they have answered me with the correct solution in a few hours, and all of this for a more than reasonable price. I personally recommend it to everyone :)

...

I have been using CloudxLab for last 3 months for learning Hadoop and Spark, and I can vouch for it.

It’s a platform where you can learn from the tutorial videos and then practice in the lab they provide on cloud. The study materials are well-planned and I would be lying if I say its not great.
The video lectures explains the technical stuffs in very simple ways which makes it easier to grasp the concepts. Also, the customer service is great.
So, thumbs up for the team associated with CloudxLab.
To conclude my views, I would just say that, if you are willing to learn Big Data related stuff, I strongly recommend CloudxLab.

...

I think I can give some points on this . Am using cloudxlab for more than an year… my intention is for continuous learning.
For Students and technology change professionals :
In General Big data hadoop, (a) you can learn on your personal PC, but for that the minimum configuration of 12 GB Ram with good processing speed, still when you execute jobs it will take more time for processing jobs as it will be acting as single node.(b) If you try to install each and every components, it will take hell a lot of admin work , and some thing happens , you have to invest lot of time for debugging.
The main advantage of using cloudxlab,
a) Get 6 node production cluster with all installed components, just getting user and password, you can start working on it.
b) You have almost all the access.
c) Good amount of components installed.
d) You can play around with each of them with 5gb of test data.
e) So far I didnt experience any down time.
f) You can Practice in your college lab, on free time.
g) Good email support on technical perspective.
h) They have couple of test data, I use my own.
i) vi and nano editor supported.
j) Some of the components which I remember are HDFS,MapReduce2, YARN, Tez, ZooKeeper,Falcon,Storm, Kafka,Spark,Jupyter Notebook, Hive,HBase, Pig, Sqoop, Oozie, Flume,Accumulo,Ambari.

...

I have been using CloudxLab for sometime and based on my usage experience I can say that they have done a fabulous job.

The first problem anyone faces while learning Big Data technologies is running the VMs on his/her laptop. VMs require a good amount of dedicated RAM and so most of the times we end up spending in hardware upgrade. But even after an upgrade the requirement of a cluster is never met. The examples we try alaways runs on a single node setup.

To try this on a production like cluster setup we have something like AWS, but there is a good amount of cost involved in that. Also, they keep the credit card details with them which I feel not everyone feels safe to share.

And this is where I feel CloudxLab seems to be a better bet.Their pricing is very much competitive compared to the other offerings and also it doesn’t require any specific hardware requirement. Any desktop/laptop with any configuration which has connectivity to net is good for getting started.

No need to do any setups.Their clusters are fully loaded with all the latest Big Data packages.You can access them from anywhere.

The only thing you need to concentrate is on your learning :)

Hope this helps to anyone who is looking for an option beyond VMs.
