Geting the most out of akka clusters

Aug 14, 2015

Anyone serious about distributed systems or building one, commonly encounters issues such as replication, consistency, availability and partition tolerance (CAP) [1].

Elastically adding and removing nodes using akka cluster

Aug 07, 2015

This post explores a pull-based master/worker architecture – one that is suitable for anyone who is looking to elastically provision nodes when the load is higher than normal and under-provision when the load is below normal.

All this information is indexed into ELASTICSEARCH.
