Reactor, as the name suggests, is heavily influenced by the well-known Reactor design pattern. But it is also influenced by other event-driven design practices, as well as several awesome JVM-based solutions that have been developed over the years. Reactor's goal is to condense these ideas and patterns into a simple and reusable foundation for making event-driven programming much easier.

Reactor’s abstractions give the developer a set of tools to not just develop but compose applications in a way that more efficiently uses system resources--which is particularly important when running in the cloud--and reduce or eliminate the spaghetti of nested callbacks (aptly named “callback hell”) that has so far burdened most asynchronous applications.
