DP Platform support requirements
The specific DP Apps you plan to install into your environment might bring additional requirements. Review the App-specific documentation thoroughly to ensure you can meet the App-specific requirements. For example, depending on your choice of Apps, your cluster requirements might change. This includes (but is not limited to) a minimal HDP version, setup and configuration of Knox, and other cluster requirements.
You should review the support requirements for the DP Platform to ensure your environment meets those requirements. Additionally, you must consider various aspects of your HDP clusters and prepare those clusters as part of your DataPlane installation in order to register the clusters with DataPlane.

DP Platform Host requirements
DP Platform must be installed on a dedicated host that is not part of an existing HDP cluster, to prevent potential port conflicts with other HDP services.
DataPlane is certified for use with specific versions of CentOS and RHEL. These operating systems include support for Docker 1.12 or higher.
|Container infrastructure||Docker 1.12.x or higher|
|Processing and Memory Requirements||
|Authentication||Existing LDAP or Active Directory (AD)|
When configuring the software repositories, to avoid a potential port conflict, be sure you either use a distinct host or do not host the local repositories on port 80.
A SmartSense ID is required to enable any service app on DP Platform. You can retrieve the SmartSense ID from the Hortonworks Support Portal, under the Tools tab.
