We're now happy to support both Apache Storm and Apache Kafka as part of our Rackspace Data Services offering! Apache Storm excels at taking the operative batch nature of map-reduce and applying a near-real-time computation model to meet the demanding nature of a high velocity data source.

Apache Kafka is a highly scalable publish-subscribe messaging system. It works with Storm to handle incoming data streams and ensure that data is being captured, processed, and removed in a way that accommodates continual operation.

"Just as Instagram is not primarily about photos, but the relationships created by photos, +Zipline Labs is less about financial transactions and more about the relationships surrounding those transactions. The Zipline app uses a text messaging-like interface to transfer money in the context of a conversation." Read more about Zipline and how Rackspace DevOps powers them: http://rack.ly/6267B6qst
