Breaking down a monolith into microservices can decouple development teams and support less risky and more frequent releases.
The complete Lightbend stack runs on the JVM, supporting both Java and Scala.
Our Lightbend stack is designed not just to scale up at peak load, but also to scale down afterwards. See how Zalando is handling 100x traffic spikes using Reactive Platform.
On existing infrastructure, systems using the Lightbend stack can handle a greater load more efficiently.
During development, redeploys can eat up your day. Play and Lagom provide hot reloading. One Lightbend customer believes this makes their developers 20-40% more productive than when they were using WebLogic.
The Lightbend stack is cloud-proven on Kubernetes, AWS, and Mesosphere DC/OS by companies with extreme requirements, such as Twitter, Zalando, and major banks. Try our guides for deploying on different platforms to get a hands-on experience.
Play framework is a high velocity, modern, scalable and fun way to create web applications, developed and maintained by Lightbend. Play supports both Java and Scala.
Scala is a modern, concise and typesafe language that mixes functional and object oriented programming, created by Martin Odersky, and developed and maintained by Lightbend Scala team in conjunction with LAMP EPFL and Scala Center.
Akka is a toolkit for building reactive applications based on the actor model, created by Jonas Bonér, and developed and maintained by Lightbend. Akka supports both Java and Scala.
Lagom is an opinionated microservices framework for moving away from the monolith, developed and maintained by Lightbend. Lagom supports both Java and Scala.
