Riak in 33 Seconds

By Erlang Central | Published: December 2, 2010

We would like to introduce Riak. This is a Dynamo-inspired key/value store that scales horizontaly and uses Map/Reduce as a query language. We are going to talk about its strengths and
weaknesses and discuss tradeoffs of using Riak compared to other databases (both relational and NoSQL). We will also describe Riak’s architecture and show it at work during the live demo.
