Diagram showing an overview of Akka Edge

Akka Edge is similar to Akka Distributed Cluster and they share features and implementation, but Akka Edge is intended for use cases with even more geographically distributed services and possibly in more resource constrained environments. In contrast, Akka Distributed Cluster is intended for connecting rather few services in different cloud regions. Akka Edge and Akka Distributed Cluster are designed to be used together.
