High Performance Actors



Kiki Carter takes a deep-dive to investigate how efficient resource utilisation is achieved with Akka. She looks at some of the other libraries that Akka leverages for improved efficiency, e.g. Aeron & JCTools. She reviews a real-life business case which illustrates Akka’s ability to outperform other architectures and achieve efficient resource utilisation while lower operating costs.


Kiki Carter is a Principal Enterprise Architect at Lightbend, Inc.
