Basho would not be where we are today without the valuable partnerships we have forged. Our partners have made Riak much more accessible and powerful. If you’re not familiar with our range of partners, check out our Partnership Page.

A large part of our partnership program is with hosting providers. Currently, we partner with five hosting providers:

Amazon Web Services: Riak can be quickly implemented via the AMI available on the Amazon Marketplace. To help you set up and configure a Riak cluster with this AMI, check out our blog post that walks you through the process. If AMI isn’t the right option for you, we have a few other deployment options available as well.

Windows Azure: Riak is a fully supported and tested NoSQL database option available on the Microsoft VM Depot. You can quickly deploy a virtual machine image or manually install via our packaging tools. You can learn more about this partnership on our blog.

Engine Yard: Hosted Riak is officially supported on the Engine Yard cloud platform. A Riak cluster can be deployed as simply as defining some configuration values and clicking “Add Cluster.” Ines Sombra, Lead Data Engineer at Engine Yard, has put together a talk to help you get started using Riak in cloud environments.

Joyent: Riak SmartMachines, developed in partnership with Joyent, enable SmartOS users to quickly deploy Riak on the Joyent infrastructure. These SmartMachines are scalable, fault-tolerant, open source key/value database servers intended to be the primary data storage mechanism in production applications. Check out Joyent’s site for more information.

SoftLayer: Riak and Riak Enterprise are available on SoftLayer’s global cloud platform. Customers can design and deploy a complete solution through SoftLayer’s solution designer and leverage the global footprint of SoftLayer data centers to provide for multi-datacenter replication. Check out our blog post for more information.
