In this post, we'll discuss one of the Akka.NET plugins, Akka.Cluster.Sharding and how it gives us easier, higher level abstractions to work with actors (in this case also referred to as entities). Cluster.Sharding gives us: By using a logical keys (in form of ShardId/EntityId pairs) it's able to route our messages to the right entity without need to explicitly determine on which node in the cluster it lives.
