Cassandra NYC 2011: The Storm and Cassandra Realtime Computation Stack

Title: The Storm and Cassandra Realtime Computation Stack

Presenter: Nathan Marz (Twitter)

Description: Nathan Marz (@nathanmarz) is currently employed at Twitter as the lead engineer for the Storm Project. In Nathan’s own words: Storm is a distributed, reliable, and fault-tolerant stream processing system. Its use cases are so broad that we consider it to be a fundamental new primitive for data processing. That’s why we call it the Hadoop of realtime: it does for realtime processing what Hadoop does for batch processing. Storm is of particular value for stream processing, continuous computation, and distributed RPC. Read more about Nathan’s work at his blog: Thoughts from a Red Planet.
