What tools integrate with Orleans?
we used akka as our concurrency system at talenthouse. had the chance to write several worker. we used both akka messaging and rabbitmq to communicate. quite a slick system, was fun writing it in scala.
Akka powers our asynchronous document upload processor, handling e.g. tasks for OCR, thumbnail generation and document analysis.
