Thanks for the response . I understand your points . If I  use kubernetes 
load balancing, service discovery and autoscaling , do you still see the 
need of use Akka cluster in this microservice architecture ? . I can deploy 
the Akka rest application inside docker and will use k8s feature for 
load-balancing and application POD replication.   
Akka http can be able to fetch data from DB and execute some buisness 
logic  .

Do you see any thing I will miss if I am not using Akka cluster ? I new to 
this Akka world , so willing learn and sorry If I asked some non-sense 
question . Pls help ..
