In this meetup we will integrate Storm and Apache Cassandra to build a distributed web crawling system.

http://storm-project.net/

Storm allows you to build long running, distributed, services that scale and offer processing guarantee. While it holds some simple state in process, Storm usually relies on a third party datastore to store its results. Storm is used successfully by many companies (often using Cassandra) and was recently accepted into the Apache incubator.

I will cover the basics of Storm in the context of a simple web crawling system that relies of Cassandra to store its metadata and the web content.
