Overview of this book

Apache Storm is a real-time Big Data processing framework that processes large amounts of data reliably, guaranteeing that every message will be processed. Storm allows you to scale your data as it grows, making it an excellent platform to solve your big data problems. This extensive guide will help you understand right from the basics to the advanced topics of Storm. The book begins with a detailed introduction to real-time processing and where Storm fits in to solve these problems. You’ll get an understanding of deploying Storm on clusters by writing a basic Storm Hello World example. Next we’ll introduce you to Trident and you’ll get a clear understanding of how you can develop and deploy a trident topology. We cover topics such as monitoring, Storm Parallelism, scheduler and log processing, in a very easy to understand manner. You will also learn how to integrate Storm with other well-known Big Data technologies such as HBase, Redis, Kafka, and Hadoop to realize the full potential of Storm. With real-world examples and clear explanations, this book will ensure you will have a thorough mastery of Apache Storm.

In this chapter, we introduced Apache Hadoop and the various components, such as HDFS, YARN, and so on, that are part of a Hadoop cluster. We also saw the subcomponents of an HDFS and YARN cluster and how they interact with each other. Then we walked through how to set up a single node Hadoop cluster.

We also introduced Storm-YARN, which was the main point of this chapter. Storm-YARN enables you to run Storm topologies on a Hadoop cluster. This helps from a manageability and operations point of view. Finally, we saw how to deploy a topology on Storm running on YARN.

In the next chapter, we will see how Storm can integrate with other big data technologies, such as HBase, Redis, and so on.
