= Description =

Akka Cluster is a powerful toolkit for building distributed applications. But as always, power comes with a price. Special care needs to be taken during bootstrapping, network partitions and gracefully stopping a cluster.

In this talk, Markus introduces the Akka Management CoordinatedShutdown and Akka Split Brain Resolver modules and demonstrates on a running Kubernetes cluster how these libraries can help to manage an Akka Cluster in production. Join us when you want to know how a stateful application can handle rolling deployments without downtime and without losing in-flight requests and how it can safely recover from network partitions.
