Introducing Storm on HDInsight

Play Introducing Storm on HDInsight


In this episode of Data Exposed, Scott welcomes Asad Khan, Principle PM on the HDInsight team. Today Asad introduce us to Storm , a new service on HDInsight for real time analytics. This is an interesting and exciting episode as Asad walks us through how Microsoft utilizes an open-source technology to produce a cloud-based data streaming service for HDInsight. Asad walks us through the end-to-end architecture and implementation of Storm on HDInsight and what the service has to offer in terms of the power and flexibility of the service. Because this is an open-source technology, Asad spends some significant time on Microsoft's promise to the customer in terms of service usability and performance. The episode ends with a fun and exciting demo where Asad uses the twitter API to stream in a specific twitter topic to show the power of Storm. Great stuff!

    I have a small question, does Stream Insights and Storm solve similar problems?if so why different solutions for the same problem. If not when to use one over the other?
