I have been advised to learn Hadoop for my company and so I want to build a test environment.
The company I work for has a datacentre with a VMware vCloud infrastructure which they use to sell private clouds to other companies.
I'm allowed to use some CPU, RAM, network and storage, but I can't seem to find a base level requirements for Hadoop in a small testing environment.
I am thinking to spin up a single VM working as a single node cluster, working on simple job like analysing 1000s of PDF documents for keywords, extracting paragraphs and reformatting into a single HTML document.
Can anyone advise on the minimum requirements I should provision for this VM, or where I can find this information.
