Lightbend has announced the launch of its Java Software Development Kit (SDK) for Kalix, a unique Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering that delivers a new programming model explicitly designed to bring cloud-native applications to market quickly. Kalix works with underlying cloud infrastructure to mask the complexity of building cloud native apps based on Kubernetes.
In conjunction with the new SDK, millions of Java and Spring developers worldwide now have the tools to quickly build scalable, mission-critical, stateful applications in a serverless architecture while focusing solely on the application’s business logic.
Java is universally recognized as one of the most prolific and powerful programming languages today, used by tens of millions of developers and businesses worldwide for their mission-critical applications. Currently undergoing a cloud renaissance, Java is increasingly leveraged for cloud native applications by enterprises and Java and Spring developers will enjoy a reduced learning curve because using this SDK will feel native.
Kalix is a PaaS, developed by Lightbend, that enables organizations to build and deploy cloud-native microservices and APIs rapidly and at the lowest possible cost. It provides an “out of the box” cloud native stack that delivers a 200% increase in developer velocity with minimal operations required.
