In this chapter, we introduced you to the basics of Storm and the various components that make up a Storm cluster. We saw the different operation modes in which a Storm cluster can operate. We deployed a single-node Storm cluster and also developed a sample topology to run it on the single-node Storm cluster.
In the next chapter, we will set up a three-node Storm cluster to run the sample topology. We will also see different types of Stream groupings supported by Storm and the guaranteed message semantic provided by Storm.
