I'm quite new to Scala as well as Akka actors. I'm really only reading about their use and implementation now. My background is largely js and python with a bit of C#.

A new service I have to write is going to receive REST requests, then do the following:

Open a socket connection to a message broker Query an external REST service once Make many big, long REST requests to another internal service, do math on the responses, and send the result out. Messages are sent through the socket connection as progress updates. Scalability is the primary concern here, as we may normally receive ~10 small requests per minute, but at unknown times receive several jaw-droppingly enormous and long running requests at once.
