New Name - Cloudstate is now Akka Serverless
The Serverless experience is revolutionary and will grow to dominate the future of cloud computing; however, Function-as-a-Service (FaaS)—with its ephemeral, stateless, and short-lived functions—is only the first step.
FaaS is great for processing intensive, parallelizable workloads: moving data from A to B providing enrichment and transformation along the way, for example.
