Fast responses are not fast enough when it comes to internet scale cloud solutions. Organizations building distributed systems with demanding requirements encounter challenges that cannot fully be solved with a traditional object-oriented programming (OOP) model. To take care of scale, systems are becoming more and more distributed to address elastic scale, but often at the expense of reliability and responsiveness. These are hard to build and choosing the right framework can be hard.
In this talk we will discuss how the Akka Actor framework from Lightbend is a great alternative for concurrency to facilitate Asynchronous Reactive server side solutions which can provide the performance requirements and and the reliability expected today. We will talk about how Java one can create restful micro-services with Akka Actors deployed on RedHat OpenShift, which will provide an architectural solution that meets these expectations. Today, the actor model is not only recognized as a highly effective solution — it has been proven in production for some of the world’s most demanding applications.
Attendees can expect to walk away understanding:
- The fundamentals of and how to program Reactive Microservices
- How Akka Actors work
- How RedHat Openshift can be used to deploy Reactive Systems
