Storm is a distributed realtime computation system. Similar to how Hadoop provides a set of general primitives for doing batch processing, Storm provides a set of general primitives for doing realtime computation. Storm is simple, can be used with any programming language, [is used by many companies](, and is a lot of fun to use!
The [Rationale page]( on the wiki explains what Storm is and why it was built. [This presentation]( is also a good introduction to the project.
Storm has a website at []( Follow [@stormprocessor]( on Twitter for updates on the project.
