Large applications are still built with yesterday's software architectures. They are monolithic, slow & prone to failure & downtime - tens of servers, seconds of response time, hours of offline maintenance & gigabytes of data. Today apps are deployed on everything from mobile devices to cloud-based clusters running thousands of multi-core processors. Users expect millisecond response times & 100% uptime. Data is measured in Petabytes. Today's demands are simply not met by yesterday's software architectures.
A coherent approach to systems architecture is needed; all aspects are already recognized individually: we want systems that are Responsive, Resilient, Elastic & Message Driven. We call these Reactive Systems. Reactive Architecture grew out of a need for software to remain responsive when presented with the unique challenges of the modern world.
This presentation & workshop will introduce you to the principles that drive the movement towards Reactive Systems. It will help you to understand why Reactive Architecture is important, & how it can help you build responsive software. In the world of big data & analytics like in Finance & Retail it's essential to use Reactive architectures to provide responsive real-time systems that are always on. We will focus on AKKA - a toolkit for building highly concurrent, distributed, & resilient message-driven applications for Java.
