I am thinking about replacing RabbitMQ with Akka.net, the reason to do is to reduce the overhead of deploying RabbitMQ, is Akka.net a good replacement for RabbitMQ?

@sandeepc24 It really depends what your using RabitMQ for, but as a short answer Akka.Clustering could be a good fit depending on your use case. You might want to consider a hybrid approach rather than a full replacement. If you want some advice, PM me and I'll be happy to help.

@nathvi I mean, I don't see what you want to compare here. Both node.js and akka.net run on computers, that's where the similiarities end
@sandeepc24 RabbitMQ is persistent message queue, something that is not offerred by akka out of the box. On the other side akka.net is an actor model programming model, a thing much more invasive for your application engineering practices than just persistent message queue like RabbitMQ
