A real-time bonanza: Facebook's Wormhole and Yahoo's streaming Hadoop | Big Data - let your data grow | Scoop.it

This week, both Facebook and Yahoo detailed new efforts to manage real-time data flows within their myriad systems. Yahoo’s work is an open source implementation of Storm designed to run on the same cluster as Hadoop and even share resources. If you’re into systems that can share data among each other in real time, this has been a good week. On Tuesday, Yahoo open sourced its version of the popular Storm stream-processing software that’s able to run inside Hadoop clusters. Then, on Thursday, Facebook detailed a system called Wormhole that informs the platform’s myriad applications when changes have occurred in another, so that each one is working from the newest data possible.
