MapR provides easy to use Sandboxes for a long time already, allowing developers and administrators to quickly start your journey with the MapR Converged Data Platform (Sandbox downloads: https://www.mapr.com/products/mapr-sandbox-hadoop ). In addition to the MapR Sandboxes, there are also various free Vagrant boxes now available for quick evaluation and deployment in non-production environments.
You can download the Vagrant boxes containing the MapR v5.1 Converged Data Platform including eco-system components like Apache Spark and Apache Drill for free. With just 2 commands you can have the MapR Converged Data Platform including eco-system components up and running.

As these vagrant boxes are my personal creation, they are not officially supported. Please provide any feedback or question in this thread.
