Customers Love Akka Serverless

Typically, I spend 80% of my time just dealing with stuff that has nothing to do with the problem I’m trying to solve. With Akka Serverless I got to spend all of my time on the business problem.

James Ward
Developer Advocate, Google Cloud

Akka Serverless is set to be a game-changer, helping to drive greater business agility and empowering technology teams to adopt a wider innovation lens.

Rob Howes
CTO, Judopay

I’d be very disappointed if I couldn’t use Akka Serverless anymore.

Private Beta Participant

Have quite a number of junior engineers that don’t like to spin up a lot of extra infrastructure (like databases). Using Akka Serverless makes a lot of sense.
