Storm seems to be more focused on data flow between Storm processors (spout? bolt? i forget). My particular use case follows this pattern:
* read id from kafka queue
* fetch object from database
* modify the object
* write back to database
Would Storm be a good fit for this? It doesn't seem to fit in with the whole bolt/spout pattern. It's more like a distributed task queue.
