Riak 2.0.1


Riak is a highly-available fault-tolerant distributed key/value database.

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.
