In this chapter, we saw what the requirements of any distributed computing environment are and how Akka implements them. We saw various methods of creating actors using the remote deployment mode, and how to create remote references to remote objects.

Next we saw how object serialization happens on Akka, the various serializers provided by Akka, and how we can write our own serializers.

In the next chapter, we will the see the techniques available to monitor and manage your large, distributed application. We will cover the Akka monitoring tools and the various statistics provided by these tools.
