Getting Started by Installing SnappyData On-Premise

Download the latest version of SnappyData from the SnappyData Release Page, which lists the latest and previous releases of SnappyData.

$ tar -xzf snappydata-1.0.2.1-bin.tar.gz
$ cd snappydata-1.0.2.1-bin/
# Create a directory for SnappyData artifacts
$ mkdir quickstartdatadir
$./bin/spark-shell --conf spark.snappydata.store.sys-disk-dir=quickstartdatadir --conf spark.snappydata.store.log-file=quickstartdatadir/quickstart.log

It opens the Spark shell. All SnappyData metadata, as well as persistent data, is stored in the directory quickstartdatadir.

The spark-shell can now be used to work with SnappyData using Scala APIs and SQL.
