Erlang as well as Elixir are both fault tolerant, highly scalable, concurrent functional programming languages. Erlang was developed by Ericson in 1993 to solve the problems of the Telecoms industry. Since then it has been widely accepted across various companies in Fintech, Automotive, Blockchain, Gaming, e-commerce, smart metering – to name a few industries. A checklist of common benefits that a company gets from using Elixir are:
• Need to grow or scale – If you have a service that you expect to be used by millions, then you’ll benefit from the reliability and scalability of the BEAM VM.
• Handling a lot of incoming requests – Even if you don’t have millions of users, if all of your users make intense use of the system and generate a high volume of requests, you will need a system built for concurrency.
• Easy to develop and maintainable – One of the priorities of Erlang and Elixir is keeping the code simple. As a result, one of the advantages most companies will see is ease of usage and fast development for everything from fixing bugs to adding new features.
