Download Description

Use the IBM Open Platform with Apache Hadoop with IBM BigInsights 4.1 to set up and configure an Apache Hadoop installation. You must install IBM Open Platform before you install an IBM BigInsights module.

The most current level of the IBM Open Platform with Apache Hadoop is V4.1.

Note: If you want to try out IBM BigInsights, you can use the Quick Start Edition (see section below: IBM BigInsights Quick Start Edition for Non-Production Environment).

BigInsights V4.1
There are 5 BigInsights modules to choose from. Each module below describes the services that are in the module. Once you have identified the module that you have purchased, follow these instructions to download the associated parts numbers from the table below.

The most current level is IBM BigInsights V4.1.0.2 and is available on Passport Advantage under IBM BigInsights V4.1.

From a web browser, navigate to the Find Downloads and Media page on the IBM Passport Advantage web site. You must log in to continue.
  1. Under Download finder options, select the Browse your entitled software, select B to find your BigInsights module(s) for which you have entitlement.
  2. After you select the operating system and language, the files associated with your module will be shown next.
  3. At a minimum, you can download the bin and readme file for each module. Each bin file is less than 1 MB and you will see one or more bin files based on the operating system you selected. Continue with these instructions to complete the download of your module. Tip: Once you execute the bin file, you have the choice of using the online option, which will connect to the internet and install your services, or the offline option which will download the tar.gz files (in case your server does not have internet access).

The eAssembly part number contains the bin and readme files in addition to the bundled products that are included in the offering.
