Akka 23.05 enables businesses to expand cloud native applications across multiple data centers while maintaining performance, consistency, and reliability—whether multi-region, multi-cloud, hybrid cloud, or on-premise.
SAN FRANCISCO, May 16, 2023 – Lightbend, the company providing cloud-native microservices frameworks for some of the world’s largest brands, today announced the launch of Akka Distributed Cluster (Akka v.23.05), which brings innovative new capabilities for accelerating data delivery to users; maintaining application availability even in the event of a cloud provider outage; cutting costs by minimizing data storage expenses and reducing server data traffic; and conserving developer time. These new features, combined with Akka, one of the most powerful platforms for distributed computing, give enterprises the ability to build mission-critical cloud native applications in less time than ever.
“I have long maintained that the demarcation between ‘cloud’ and ‘edge’ is not a clear boundary, but a spectrum of environments based on the specific requirements of the application use case,” said Jonas Bonér, Lightbend’s founder and CEO. “Akka Distributed Cluster brings industry-first capabilities that blur the distinctions between cloud and edge and continue our progress in building a new paradigm for tomorrow’s cloud-to-edge continuum.”
Akka Distributed Cluster is comprised of the following:
These new capabilities enable Akka Distributed Cluster to maximize cloud capabilities, ensuring efficiency, correctness, and resilience. Lightbend will continue to build new capabilities into Akka that will push the boundaries of what’s possible with distributed computing.
