Chapter 10. Storm Integration with Redis, Elasticsearch, and HBase

In the previous chapter, we covered an overview of Apache Hadoop and its various components. We also presented an overview of Storm-YARN, and looked at deploying Storm-YARN on Apache Hadoop.

In this chapter, we will explain how you can integrate Storm with other databases for storing the data, and how we can use Esper inside a Storm bolt to support the windowing operation.

The following are the key points we are going to cover in this chapter:

  • Integration of Storm with HBase
  • Integration of Storm with Redis
  • Integration of Storm with Elasticsearch
  • Integration of Storm with Esper to perform the windowing operation
