SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 12, 2015) - Typesafe, provider of the world's leading Reactive platform and the company behind Play Framework, Akka, and Scala, today announced Typesafe ConductR -- the first system designed specifically for IT operations teams to deploy and manage Typesafe Reactive Platform applications across multiple servers in clusters.
Reactive applications are designed to be responsive, resilient and elastic at scale in the face of heavy traffic or spontaneous failures. Consequently, they are highly distributed by design (written to run across multiple servers). But operators today face many challenges in managing clusters of Reactive applications. Existing infrastructure automation tools, while useful, have not been designed with the demands of modern distributed applications in mind. Operators are forced either to create and expensively maintain their own custom, home-grown solutions or cobble together a patchwork of disparate proprietary and open source tools. Practical service level agreements (SLAs) are almost impossible in these cobbled-together environments.
Typesafe ConductR is designed to address the challenges of deploying and managing Reactive applications in distributed environments by expecting failure while prioritizing system responsiveness and uptime for users. ConductR enables operations to more easily deploy and manage Typesafe Reactive Platform applications on clusters, and to exploit the benefits of Reactive systems.
ConductR helps operations with coverage for an entire application cluster, prioritizing availability, resilience and long-term maintenance of a Reactive system. The benefits include:
"We used the Typesafe Reactive Platform to build ConductR, which in turn serves customers using the Typesafe Reactive Platform," said Jonas Bonér, CTO and co-founder of Typesafe. "Microservices, containers, actors, Reactive streams, and other new patterns driven by Reactive have made software more lightweight, loosely coupled and distributed. ConductR's design and architecture was designed to seamlessly fit into our customers' environments to bring a more dynamic approach to managing these systems at scale."
Typesafe (Twitter: @Typesafe) is dedicated to helping developers build Reactive applications on the JVM. With the Typesafe Reactive Platform, developers can create modern, message-driven applications that scale on multicore and cloud computing architectures. Typesafe Activator, a browser-based tool with reusable templates, makes it easy to get started with Play Framework, Akka and Scala. Backed by Greylock Partners, Shasta Ventures, Bain Capital Ventures and Juniper Networks, Typesafe is headquartered in San Francisco with offices in Switzerland and Sweden.
