While Hadoop may be the de facto engine for processing large amounts of data, it's largely used for batch processing. Analyzing data in realtime takes the value of Hadoop to a whole new level. And that's where HStreaming comes in.
Founded in 2010, Chicago-based HStreaming is a scalable, continuous data analysis system built on Hadoop. It allows organizations to analyze, visualize and act upon massive amounts of continuous data -- such as a financial trading system might generate -- in realtime.
