I think the first language which would come to mind, is acutally
Erlang. As a cloud server process and cloud database backend might be
physically distributed, it's more logical to send messages between
them asynchronously, than share state in parallel. But yes, Haskell
fit's this pattern well, through the Control.Concurrent library.
