Matt Aslett, 5 October 2017

Lightbend is the company behind the Reactive application development platform and associated open source projects, including the Scala general-purpose programming language and Akka event- driven middleware. Having seen increasing demand from customers for help developing and deploy- ing stream-processing applications, a year ago Lightbend announced the early-access program for its Fast Data Platform, which is designed to remove the complexity from developing and deploying streaming data applications. Now generally available, the Fast Data Platform incorporates multiple open source projects such as Apache Spark, Apache Kafka and Apache Flink, as well as the company’s Reactive Platform and the monitoring analytics functionality acquired with OpsClarity in February.
