I am coming from relational DB and monolithic application background and trying to understand Akka. There is one thing confusing me about Akka persistency. In relational DB’s you assign server instances, file names, logs, discs etc. and you provide consistency, recovery, security and all the other things about data around this structure. How do you do same things for Akka persistency? Where does persistent data resides, how do you manage persisted data in terms of consistency, recovery, security etc.?
NOTE 1: I assumed that we do not use any third party data store system such as mongo or mysql.
NOTE 2: If I am not wrong, I understood that Akka persistency is not relational, but it is key based.
