HortonworksHortonworks Sandbox is something I am planning to try when I get around to learning the ins and outs of Hadoop. Like they say themselves; The easiest way to get started with Enterprise Hadoop.

Sandbox is a personal, portable Hadoop environment that comes with a dozen interactive Hadoop tutorials. Sandbox includes many of the most exciting developments from the latest HDP distribution, packaged up in a virtual environment that you can get up and running in 15 minutes!
