In February 2014, the Apache Storm community released Storm version 0.9.1. Storm is a distributed, fault-tolerant, and high-performance real-time computation system that provides strong guarantees on the processing of data. Hortonworks is already supporting customers using this important project today.
Many organizations have already used Storm, including our partner Yahoo! This version of Apache Storm (version 0.9.1) is:
- Highly scalable. Like Hadoop, Storm scales linearly
- Fault-tolerant. Automatically reassigns tasks if a node fails
