Perhaps it might be useful for you to articulate your use case?  Not to sound like a generic non-answer, but most of the streaming/CEP frameworks are pretty good, narrowing down a short list of which ones to use beyond basic requirements can be highly subjective:  does your language of choice have a "first class" API?  do you already have a Hadoop environment that is more tightly integrated with one framework or another? Do you prefer a newer framework with newer features and a less mature code base? Or do you prefer a well tested/tried framework?

All of these choices boils down to much more than a quantitative evaluation based on benchmark performance...

Subject: Motivations for using Apache Storm?

Good afternoon -

I've started doing research on various stream processing frameworks and it seems like there are a ton of them out there.

Out of curiosity what were the underlying motivations to go with Storm as opposed to one of the other frameworks out there?

Thank you for your time.
