You want to take advantage of the cloud—getting there isn’t easy. Lifting and shifting traditional server-based application frameworks to containers and deploying them in the cloud doesn’t get the job done. The Lightbend Akka Cloud Platform on AWS can get you there. Now you can develop software that is data-centric, highly performant, scalable, resilient and efficient while leveraging a cloud-native infrastructure to fully capitalize on the scalability and availability of the cloud.
By leveraging Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) and Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS), you eliminate the need to install, operate, and scale your own cluster management infrastructure.
With simple API calls, you can launch and stop Docker-enabled applications, query the complete state of your cluster, and access many familiar features like security groups, Load Balancing, Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) volumes, and AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) roles.
