Basho Technologies is the creator and developer of Riak, a distributed NoSQL database that provides extreme high-availability, fault-tolerance, and operational simplicity.
Basho’s customers deploy Riak in enterprise-grade environments:
Engineered to leverage distributed systems, such as geo-location, no single point of failure, and high-availability.
Where traditional database models have failed, or where relational databases fail to scale to due to constraints on people, hardware, and investment resources.
Riak is architected for Low-Latency and High Availability:
Riak is designed to store data and serve requests predictably and quickly, even during peak times.
Riak replicates and retrieves data intelligently, making it highly available for read and write operations even in failure conditions.
Fault-Tolerance: so you can lose access to nodes due to network/system fabric failure and not lose data
Riak automatically distributes data around the cluster and yields a near-linear performance increase as capacity is added.
