Real-time Data Refinery

First, I must give credit to Hortonworks for a “Data Refinery” cool data buzzword.  Hortonworks “Storm and Kafka Together: A Real-time Data Refinery” article provide a great overview of data process, and why Storm and Kafka work so well together:

Apache Storm is a distributed real-time computation engine that reliably processes unbounded streams of data. While Storm processes stream data at scale, Apache Kafka processes messages at scale. Kafka is a distributed pub-sub real-time messaging system that provides strong durability and fault tolerance guarantees.

Finally, “Real Time Streaming with Apache Storm and Apache Kafka” offers the classic Twitter Stream Sentiment Analysis.
