What is your biggest problem

Agility and productivity?

  • Pressure to release new features more often and faster?
  • The need to get more stuff done in a day?
  • Modernizing your systems without throwing away existing JVM skills and libraries?

Lightbend customers have found that migrating from monolith to microservices decouples development teams and results in less risky and more frequent releases. The Lightbend stack enables this journey, provides both Java and Scala APIs, and runs on the JVM. Learn more

Scaling up to handle peaks, and down to conserve costly resources?

The Lightbend stack makes it easy to not only scale up, but also to scale down afterwards.

Better utilization of your existing hardware infrastructure?

On existing infrastructure, systems using the Lightbend stack can handle a greater load more efficiently.

  • At Reactive Summit 2017, Verizon described how the Lightbend stack requires 1/8 of the infrastructure compared to their previous solution (see the summary slide ~30 minutes in).
  • PayPal using Akka Streams gained 10x performance increase over their previous solution.
  • Walmart Canada moved 40% of total compute cycles off of expensive dedicated hardware needed for Oracle ATG and onto internal virtual infrastructure running cheap commodity x86 servers, saving 20% to 50% in infrastructure cost.

Ready to move to the cloud?

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.
