Build your own twitter like real time analytics - a step by step guide

This is a quick little trip over to highscalability.com for an article entitled Build your own twitter like real time analytics - a step by step guide.

You can certainly build a batch-based system using hadoop or something similar. The real trick is to build a real-time analytics system. The article points to the following 3 features:

  1. Use In Memory Data Grid (XAP) for handling the real time stream data-processing.
  2. BigData data-base (Cassandra) for storing the historical data and manage the trend analytics 
  3. Use Cloudify (cloudifysource.org)  for managing and automating the deployment on private or public cloud 

I have been working on some batch processing techniques for processing data. I need to employ some different processing to move it to a streaming process.
