NoSQL Search Roadshow Zurich 2013

Presentation: "Killing pigs and saving Danish bacon with Riak"

Time: Thursday 09:55 - 10:40 / Location: Index

There are two things we should all demand whenever we choose a database: 

  • Uptime: it should be available for reads and writes whenever we need it.
  • Scalability: our chosen database should grow with the success of our project.

Riak is an open source key-value database that is fault tolerant, highly available and scales with ease.

Even when nodes go down, Riak stay up for reads and writes. And when your needs grow, scaling Riak is as simple as adding new nodes to your cluster.

In this talk we'll look at real-world production uses of Riak at organisations including:

  • Rovio, the makers of Angry Birds
  • The Danish national health service
  • Temetra, the utility metering company.

Come and find out how Riak can ensure your application remains available through disasters and sudden success.
