Akka-Pi cluster

A visual representation of split-brain occurrence

Akka is a free and open source toolkit and runtime that simplifies how you construct concurrent and distributed applications. When operating an Akka cluster, you need to handle network partitions (also called split brain scenarios) and machine crashes.

Our Raspberry Pi demo uses LED lights to demonstrate cluster formation, split-brain occurrence, and split brain resolver in a visual manner.

IBM's Reactive Platform is an application development framework and runtime solution. It's offered by IBM in partnership with Lightbend, and is based on the leading JVM development platform for creating massively scalable, self-healing microservices on a message-driven runtime.

Use it to revitalise existing applications, and to build new ones,  that take advantage of advances in distributed architecture, cloud computing, and cognitive systems.
