  • InfluxDB - Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • Akka

    Build highly concurrent, distributed, and resilient message-driven applications on the JVM

    What you are describing is more or less the actor programming model. (If you’ve heard of Akka, then you’ve heard of the actor model.) Loom is an enabling technology for implementing the actor model on the (vanilla) JVM, and a lot of people are looking forward to that, including me! So that’s a perfectly valid approach.
