Akka Distributed Cluster for Next-Gen Edge Computing Across Multiple Data Centers

Akka Distributed Cluster extends applications across multiple data centers while maintaining performance, consistency, and reliability—whether multi-region, multi-cloud, hybrid cloud, or on-premise.

  • Accelerate—data delivery to users
  • Maintain availability—even in the event of a cloud provider outage
  • Cut costs—by minimizing data storage expenses and reducing server data traffic
  • Conserve—developer time with the ability to integrate these features into Akka

Akka Distributed Cluster is comprised of:

Brokerless Pub/Sub

Low-latency, high-performance Publish-Subscribe over gRPC, with guaranteed delivery, eliminating the need for message broker management. Ensures efficient operation in memory-constrained environments, from the central Cloud to the Far Edge.

Brokerless Pub/Sub Event Filtering

Building on Brokerless Pub/Sub, allows dynamic event filters on the producer or consumer side to prevent sending and processing unnecessary data. Reduces network costs and hardware resources are freed up by only transferring the required data when needed. This feature is particularly crucial at the Edge.

Active-Active Event Sourcing

Utilize distributed event journal replication—running on gRPC, leveraging CRDTs, and the new Brokerless Pub/Sub for ultra-efficient, low-latency replication. This guarantees eventual solid consistency of event-sourced actors/entities across different data centers or Point-of-Presences at the Far Edge.

Durable State Queries

Search for data on multiple fields without additional read models, reducing the cost and time spent storing and interacting with duplicate data.
