CAF Platform

Build Status

This repository contains CAF.js core platform components.

This platform multiplexes many (e.g., 1k-10K) CAs of one application in a single node.js process, and integrates with a PaaS to scale to many processes.

The goal is to host a billion CAs with a reasonable number of servers (e.g., < 30K), and each CA processing a simple message per second.

We use Redis to checkpoint CAs state before externalization. The state of a CA is assumed to be small, i.e., kilobytes not megabytes. See external:caf_ca.

External interaction with CAs uses a websocket pipeline based on connect. See external:caf_cli.
