Storm Real-Time Processing Cookbook

Quinton Anderson




Efficiently process unbounded streams of data in real time


  • Learn the key concepts of processing data in real time with Storm
  • Concepts ranging from Log stream processing to mastering data management with Storm
  • Written in a Cookbook style, with plenty of practical recipes with well-explained code examples and relevant screenshots and diagrams

In Detail

Storm is a free and open source distributed real-time computation system. Storm makes it easy to reliably process unbounded streams of data, doing for real-time processing what Hadoop did for batch processing. Storm is simple, can be used with any programming language, and is a lot of fun to use!

Storm Real Time Processing Cookbook will have basic to advanced recipes on Storm for real-time computation.

The book begins with setting up the development environment and then teaches log stream processing. This will be followed by real-time payments workflow, distributed RPC, integrating it with other software such as Hadoop and Apache Camel, and more.

What you will learn from this book

  • Create a log spout
  • Consume messages from a JMS queue
  • Implement unidirectional synchronization based on a data stream
  • Execute disaster recovery on a separate AWS region


A Cookbook with plenty of practical recipes for different uses of Storm.
