CDH 5 Quick Start Guide

This CDH 5 Quick Start Guide is for Apache Hadoop developers and system administrators who want to evaluate Cloudera's Distribution Including Apache Hadoop. It describes how to quickly install Apache Hadoop and CDH components from a Yum, Apt, or zypper/YaST repository on a single Linux node in pseudo-distributed mode.

For more information about installing and configuring CDH 5, and deploying it on a cluster, see the CDH 5 Installation Guide.

  Note: You can use Cloudera Manager to install and deploy CDH. Cloudera Manager automates many of the steps and makes the process as a whole much simpler. For more information, see the Cloudera Manager installation instructions.
