"Attention webscale aficionados, Twitter says it is planning to
open source Storm, its Hadoop-like real-time data processing tool.
In a blog post Thursday, the microblogging network said it plans to
release the Storm code on Sept. 19 at the Strange Loop event in St.
"The question is — does the world need another real-time
data processing tool? After all there are many tools like
HStreaming (using Hadoop), the open source S4 and StreamBase, but
the overall analytics market (if you can call it a market) is
already fragmented. The Storm code comes from Twitter's acquisition
of BackType last month and seems to be an effort to get folks
comfortable parsing data on Twitter."
