In the previous parts of this article series, we have looked at various functionality of Akka Cluster: distributed data, persistence, message delivery semantics and cluster sharding. We are far from done with exploring Akka Cluster features, but today it is time to look at one feature that is extremely useful when it comes to building – Read More

In Tour of Akka Cluster – Eventual consistency, persistent actors and message delivery semantics we started to look into making the reactive payment processor resilient to node crashes by exploring Akka Persistence, a mechansim that provides durability guarantees for actor state. We also briefly mentioned Akka Cluster Sharding which offers a way to automatically distribute – Read More

We did not, however, ensure in any way of form that the system as a whole could withstand individual node crashes. – Read More
