Lightbend‘s Akka Cloud Platform is now available on Google Cloud Marketplace. As a result, enterprise development teams leveraging Google Cloud Marketplace can take advantage of Akka Cloud Platform’s capabilities to build and deploy cloud-native microservices that easily integrate with other services and third-party services, such as Kafka.
By doing so, these enterprises can tackle complex digital transformation initiatives such as IoT, real-time financial processes and modern e-commerce while taking full advantage of the massive scale, high resiliency and low latency the cloud delivers.
Akka Cloud Platform is built on Lightbend’s Akka Platform technology, a framework for building large-scale distributed applications.
Akka Cloud Platform for Google Cloud Marketplace optimizes the capabilities of Akka into the Google Cloud ecosystem, including improved deployment in the Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE).
Telemetry and observability provide advanced system monitoring and management and there are simple integration paths for relevant Google Cloud services. Billing is managed through the Google Cloud Marketplace.
Lightbend plans to continue its release of Akka Cloud Platform on additional cloud service providers throughout 2021.
