2013 was a huge year for Basho Technologies and before we dive into 2014, we thought we’d take a moment to reflect on how far we’ve come.

Case Studies

2013 was the year of the Riak User. We love hearing about all the amazing ways companies across various industries are using Riak. This year, we were able to share dozens of exciting case studies. These include:

Releases

We released Riak 1.3, Riak 1.4, and the Technical Preview of Riak 2.0 this year. These releases added such features as Active Anti-Entropy, revamped Riak Control, queryability improvements, Riak Data Types, and much more. Be on the lookout for the general release of Riak 2.0 early next year.

This year we also open sourced Riak CS with the 1.3 release and released Riak CS 1.4. These releases added multi-part upload, Riak CS Control, and integration with OpenStack.

RICON

This year, we expanded RICON, Basho’s distributed systems conference, to both RICON East and RICON West. These were both sold out conferences that featured speakers from bitly, Comcast, Google, Netflix, Salesforce, State Farm Insurance, The Weather Company, Turner Broadcasting, Twitter, and many more.

Partners

We drastically increased the number of Basho partners in 2013. For a full list of partners, check out the Partnerships Page. Some key ones to note include Tokyo Electron Device, SoftLayer, and Seagate.

Community

Our amazing community team hosted over 200 meetups around the world this year. On top of that, they also attended dozens of industry events to spread the word about Basho. Keep an eye on the Events Page to see where we’ll be in 2014.

2013 was a busy year but, with some exciting announcements coming, we look forward to an even busier 2014. Happy New Year!
