Hadoop can be installed in multiple ways, either by using repository methods such as
apt-get or by extracting the tarball packages. The project Bigtop http://bigtop.apache.org/ provides Hadoop packages for infrastructure, and can be used by creating a local repository of the packages.
All the steps are to be performed as the root user. It is expected that the user knows how to set up a
yum repository and Linux basics.
You are going to need a Linux machine. You can either use the one which has been used in the previous task or set up a new node, which will act as repository server and host all the packages we need.
