Akka
What is it?

Akka is an open-source framework for implementing parallel and concurrent systems. Akka is a toolkit and runtime simplifying the construction of concurrent and distributed applications on the JVM.

Why do we use it?

Akka allows us to focus on meeting business needs instead of writing low-level code to provide reliable behaviour, fault tolerance, and high performance.

How can you benefit from using it?

Akka makes it possible to achieve very high performance with relatively small memory usage: up to 50 million messages/sec on a single machine, and it has a small memory footprint; ~2.5 million actors per GB of heap.

Our experience with Akka

Take a look at the following projects where we used Akka.
