Several stream processing engines have emerged in recent years. In addition to Streams, and the increasingly popular Spark Streaming project, there are several other Apache projects with stream processing capabilities, including Apex, Flink, Storm, and Samza.
However, when it comes to analyzing big data, it is certainly true that one size does not fit all. This blog post on the IBM Big Data and Analytics Hub analyzes the features of some of these engines. Its comparison of Streams’ features and those of the aforementioned Apache projects is informative and can help you determine which is right for your organization’s next project.
