Akka - Build Concurrent and Scalable Applications

  •        0

Akka is the platform for the next generation event-driven, scalable and fault-tolerant architectures on the JVM. It helps to write simpler correct concurrent applications using Actors, STM & Transactors. It could scale out on multi-core or multiple nodes using asynchronous message passing. For fault-tolerance it adopts the Let it crash or Embrace failure model to build applications that self-heals, systems that never stop.

Reddit - Social bookmark engine


Reddit is a web-based social bookmarking system. It allows multiple users to store, share and tag their favorite links online. Users will provide the content (links) and decide through voting what's good and what's junk. Links that receive community approval bubble up towards #1, so the front page is constantly in motion and filled with fresh and interesting links. Sub groups (community) could be created and each groups could be moderated by its owners.

Hypertable - A high performance, scalable, distributed storage and processing system for structured


Hypertable is based on Google's Bigtable Design, which is a proven scalable design that powers hundreds of Google services. Many of the current scalable NoSQL database offerings are based on a hash table design which means that the data they manage is not kept physically ordered. Hypertable keeps data physically sorted by a primary key and it is well suited for Analytics.
