In this talk, Hugh McKee will discuss how Akka Java Cluster and OpenShift work together to create an optimal symbiotic relationship for high performing, distributed environments. Akka Cluster allows for building distributed applications on the Akka Platform. Requiring a resilient and elastic node management system, Akka Cluster gracefully handles nodes leaving and joining a running cluster while OpenShift adds and removes nodes as needed to increase capacity or recover from failures. This session will include a live demonstration.
