Riak overview

When you should use Riak

  • You need a reliable, extremely fast non-relational database.
  • You need private cloud storage for non-huge files which can be called directly through a browser.
  • You need a JavaScript based mapreduce engine.
  • You need to play with your database via a simple REST interface.
  • AP + Eventual consistency from CAP is OK with you.
