We hope we could give you a good idea what you can use the winning combination of Riak and Node.js for, by showing you our little syslog-emulating sample application, Riaktant. We made the source code available, so if you feel like running your own syslog replacement, go right ahead and let us know how things go. Of course you can just dig into the code and see how nicely Node.js and Riak play together too.
Thanks to Joyent for providing us with SmartMachines running Riak, and for offering No.de, their great hosting service for Node.js applications, where we deployed our little app with great ease.
