InfoSphere® Streams is a powerful middleware product that provides a platform for development of streaming applications and their execution in a fast and distributed manner. In a stream processing system, there is often a need to externalize the application-related state information and share it with other distributed application components. It is possible to do distributed data sharing within the context of an InfoSphere Streams application. This is achieved through the use of the Distributed Process Store (dps) toolkit that provides a key-value store abstraction. The shared state can be stored in memcached or Redis — two popular open source distributed state management systems.
