Hi all,

I'm working on an application written in Erlang. In recent months there
have been more and more questions questioning Erlang/OTP.  There is general
recognition that many of the Erlang/OTP's features (e.g., immutable
state,supervision) are beneficial.  The questions mostly revolve around
availability of Erlang expertise and supporting libraries (e.g., Cassandra
support just to name one whereas Akka has the entire JVM ecosystem
available to it). Akka has been proposed as an alternative to Erlang.

Googling around for good comparisons between Erlang and Akka hasn't turned
up a lot of useful information, but there is some (e.g.,
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4491039/how-does-akka-compare-to-erlang).

I'd be interested if anyone in this community has any advice and/or
opinions regarding Erlang vs. Akka.  Anyone?

Thanks,
Rich
