Clustering Using Akka instead of infinispan

Hi All, I have two questions :

1) In the new release ,ODL is using Akka in order to solve cluster issues , Can anyone expiation what were the considerations to use Akka instead of Infinispan ?

2) In the implementation the Raft protocol is mentioned , Can any one explain what is Raft used for ? Is it to implement the cluster node communication ? Why does gossip protocol that Akka uses by default doesn't good enough ?

Thanks, Yafit (ECI)
