Hi Will,

They are similar technologies, but I have never used Storm, so I can't really give you a good answer to that.

Kafka provides real-time streaming capabilities, while Storm will read from Kafka to perform some operations.  

So with that brief answer in mind, I would say Kafka Streams provides you seamless integration with Kafka and you would use it in place of Storm

What I can tell you is that Kafka continues to grow and has a rich ecosystem around it.

Thanks,
Bill
