The Three Paths to Scaling with Akka
This talk consists of a comprehensive walkthrough of the microservices pattern with Akka and Cassandra. It reviews the three primary aspects to consider when developing scalable microservices:
- Separating functionality in Microservices
- Cloning nodes
- Data partitioning
For our purposes, the talk will mainly focus on this third aspect of leveraging Akka and Cassandra to achieve scalable microservices through proper data partitioning.
The Microservices Pattern is on the top of the wave nowadays. Knowing its fundamentals, and how Akka can help on this approach is highly valuable to any developer who is currently involved, or will be in the future, with high volumes of data, and will open the door to creating a more resilient and robust application.
