With Alibaba, Pivotal and Lightbend on board, Reactive flexes its ROI muscle in the microservices world

The Linux Foundation recently announced the launch of the Reactive Foundation. Its founding members are Alibaba, Lightbend, Pivotal and Netifi. So what exactly is this Reactive Kool-Aid, and why are all these companies guzzling it down so fast? If you buy the premise that developers live in a cloud-native microservices world, then you also understand that most applications are distributed and elastic. The compute is spread across clusters, as is all the data....

DevPro Journal: Newly Launched Reactive Foundation Provides Resources, Opportunities for ISVs

The Linux Foundation has announced the launch of the Reactive Foundation, which establishes a formal governance model for supporting open-source reactive programming projects. The foundation’s initial members are Alibaba, Facebook, Netifi and Pivotal, and it includes open source RSocket specification and programming language implementations. RSocket, created by Netflix, is designed to support reactive programming and enable microservices-based and cloud applications to replace HTTP with a more efficient, high-performance alternative. Ryland Degnan, Co-Founder and CTO at Netifi and Reactive Foundation community chair, told DevPro Journal, “The foundation is the outcome of a long-term collaboration among the founding companies....

SiliconANGLE: Netifi, Facebook and others team up to advance ‘reactive programming’ technologies

Cloud-native application platform company Netifi Inc. Tuesday said it’s teaming up with some big names, including Alibaba Group Holding Ltd., Facebook Inc., Pivotal Software Inc. and Lightbend Inc. to form the Reactive Foundation, which aims to accelerate the development of new technologies for building microservices-based applications. One of those technologies is RSocket, an open source application protocol that helps enable something called “reactive programming.” The aim of reactive programming is to build applications that maintain a consistent user experience regardless of traffic on the network, infrastructure performance and different end user devices....
