ABSTRACT: Storm: Distributed Real-Time Computation (better than Hadoop)
Brian will introduce Storm, which is a distributed real-time computation system used by Twitter and others for large scale processing and analysis of events and data. He will cover the primitives in Storm and demonstrate the applications of those primitives to real-world problems.
Additionally, Brian will cover the concepts of state management in a distributed system, and demonstrate different approaches for maintaining data integrity.
