Akka at Enterprise Scale:
Performance Tuning Distributed Applications

Nolan Grace, Senior Solutions Architect at Lightbend

About the webinar

Organizations like Starbucks, HPE, and PayPal have selected the Akka toolkit for their enterprise scale distributed applications; and when it comes to squeezing out the best possible performance, the secret is using two particular modules in tandem: Akka Cluster and Akka Streams.

In this webinar by Nolan Grace, Senior Solution Architect at Lightbend, we look at these two Akka modules and discuss the features that will push your application architecture to the next tier of performance. Specifically, we’ll cover:

  • A quick review of the requirements for successfully creating a distributed, Reactive system architecture
  • Deeper dive into two powerful modules in the Akka toolkit, Akka Streams and Akka Cluster, and how they complement each other
  • Examples with Akka Streams and Akka Cluster (plus other modules like Split Brain Resolver) to use in your next project to max out every node with the ability to scale and recover at a moment’s notice
