Acme Air List Of Links

Acme Air is a open source sample application and benchmark designed to be cloud native, mobile enabled, and has been run at Web Scale (over 4 billion mobile and browser client requests per day).

Acme Air is currently implemented in both Java and Node with a variety of NoSQL data tier implementations.  The workload has been run across a few IaaS clouds, PaaS platforms and bare metal deployments.  Feel free to learn from the code, documentation and the user community.   We encourage you to contribute your own implementations of different runtimes, data tiers, and cloud providers.

Below is the information that continues to be updated over time.  If you have further questions, add some comments to the blog or jump into the user group discussion.
