With its large install base in production, the Storm 1.x line has proven itself as a stable and reliable workhorse that scales well horizontally. Much has been learnt from evolving the 1.x line that we can now leverage to build the next generation execution engine. Under the STORM-2284 umbrella, we are working hard to bring you this new engine which is being redesigned at a fundamental level for Storm 2.0. The goal is to dramatically improve performance and enhance Storm's abilities without breaking compatibility.
This improved vertical scaling will help meet the needs of the growing user base by delivering more performance with less hardware.
In this talk, we will take an in-depth look at the existing and proposed designs for Storm's threading model and the messaging subsystem. We will also do a quick run-down of the major proposed improvements and share some early results from the work in progress.
