With the growth in volume and velocity of data, businesses need a scalable solution alongside batch processing to process events on the fly and provide real time insights. The canonical use case is log file analysis, for which Hadoop is well suited as part of a batch process. However, there is a need to understand and detect the events contained within the data and make that insight available to the organization so that it can react rapidly. The open-source real-time platform Storm provides a distributed and fault-tolerant solution to analyze streams of data, run complex distributed computations, and integrate with scalable distributed storage such as Cassandra.

In this session, we will describe how we used Storm to analyze network data to detect causes of network performance degradation. We will describe:
- Mechanisms for ingestion of network data
- Processing data at high velocity from multiple streams
- Deriving appropriate real time analytical models
- Creating Storm topologies to execute the analytics and events processing in real time
