Quick overview:
  • Riak is, along with Cassandra and Voldermort, an implementation of the Amazon’s Dynamo.
  • Meaning it is a highly available, proprietary key-value structured storage system aka distributed data store.
  • Riak also implement a built-in MapReduce with native support for JavaScript and Erlang programming language.
  • Client drivers are available for Erlang, Python, Java, PHP, Javascript, and Ruby.
  • Riak is written using Erlang
  • Riak comes in two flavors: open source and enterprise. Enterprise is a superset of the open source version with a few features added.
