Hey all. I am exploring this "actors" thing, and had a question... in lookgin at Orleans and Akka, I want to make sure I am not fundementally makign a conceptual error. I am working on expanding the scalability and maintainability of a social application. There is already a DocumentDB record for each user with a class / object overlay that provides some linited interfaces to interact with it, a manager to instantiate it and so on.
Obviously, we have re-implemented (badly) somethign that others have done better :)
So does it make sense to put an Actor as a sort of smart cache / internaction model but still have the authoritative data for a user live in the documentDB rather than exist soley in the Actors persistent state? Or is that sort of half comitting to this.
