Interactive Demo: Akka Cluster Nodes Under Attack, Visualized

With Hugh McKee, Solutions Architect and Developer Advocate, Lightbend

Watch on YouTube

Distributed applications running on clusters can come under attack at any time, for many reasons. What do you do when this happens? How can you safely run clusters of networked computers where nodes fail regularly?

In this hands-on session with Hugh McKee, you’ll be able to participate in a live demonstration of Akka Cluster using Lightbend Split Brain Resolver (SBR). Featuring a demo project that you can download, build, and run, you’ll be able to follow along as we experiment with failures. Specifically, we’ll cover:

  • Intro and set up (10 min) - A brief walk through Akka Cluster and the browser dashboard. You can get set up in advance by installing the project early to then interact with the dashboard during the live session. The only prerequisites are Git, Maven, and Java 8+.
  • Cluster under attack (10-15 min) - We’ll demo how SBR handles node failures and network partitions to keep your application cluster as healthy as it can be so that services can restart safely when Kubernetes restarts pods
  • Feedback from the audience and Q/A (10 min) - Here you get to provide suggestions for cluster manipulation, test different scenarios, and ask questions to Hugh about Akka Cluster and SBR.

ABOUT PRESENTER

Hugh McKee, Solutions Architect and Developer Advocate, Lightbend

Hugh is a solutions architect at Lightbend. He’s had a long career building applications that evolved slowly, that inefficiently utilized their infrastructure, and that were brittle and prone to failure. That all changed when he started building reactive, asynchronous, actor-based systems. This radically new way of building applications rocked his world. As an added benefit, building application systems became way more fun that it had ever been. Now he is focused on helping others to discover the significant advantages and joys of building responsive, resilient, elastic, message-based applications.
