Akka vs Orleans: What are the differences?

Developers describe Akka as "Build powerful concurrent & distributed applications more easily". Akka is a toolkit and runtime for building highly concurrent, distributed, and resilient message-driven applications on the JVM. On the other hand, Orleans is detailed as "An approach to building distributed applications in .NET". Orleans is a framework that provides a straightforward approach to building distributed high-scale computing applications, without the need to learn and apply complex concurrency or other scaling patterns. It was created by Microsoft Research and designed for use in the cloud.

Akka and Orleans can be categorized as "Concurrency Frameworks" tools.

Akka and Orleans are both open source tools. It seems that Akka with 9.99K GitHub stars and 3.03K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Orleans with 5.08K GitHub stars and 1.24K GitHub forks.

      What are some alternatives to Akka and Orleans?
      Spring
      A key element of Spring is infrastructural support at the application level: Spring focuses on the "plumbing" of enterprise applications so that teams can focus on application-level business logic, without unnecessary ties to specific deployment environments.
      Scala
      Scala is an acronym for “Scalable Language”. This means that Scala grows with you. You can play with it by typing one-line expressions and observing the results. But you can also rely on it for large mission critical systems, as many companies, including Twitter, LinkedIn, or Intel do. To some, Scala feels like a scripting language. Its syntax is concise and low ceremony; its types get out of the way because the compiler can infer them.
      Erlang
      Some of Erlang's uses are in telecoms, banking, e-commerce, computer telephony and instant messaging. Erlang's runtime system has built-in support for concurrency, distribution and fault tolerance. OTP is set of Erlang libraries and design principles providing middle-ware to develop these systems.
      Kafka
      Kafka is a distributed, partitioned, replicated commit log service. It provides the functionality of a messaging system, but with a unique design.
      Spring Boot
      Spring Boot makes it easy to create stand-alone, production-grade Spring based Applications that you can "just run". We take an opinionated view of the Spring platform and third-party libraries so you can get started with minimum fuss. Most Spring Boot applications need very little Spring configuration.

      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.
