Put simply, deployments of five nodes or greater provide a foundation for the best performance and growth as your cluster expands. Since Riak scales linearly with the addition of more nodes, users find improved performance, reliability, and throughput with larger clusters. More details are available in the post, Why Your Riak Cluster Should Have At Least 5 Nodes.
Cost considerations when deploying a large object storage product, such as Riak CS, can take a variety of shapes. Riak CS pricing is flexible for Service Providers looking for a usage-based model, or Enterprises calculating their investment through node count and resultant capacity. Contact Us to discuss your use case in greater detail and develop a pricing option to fit your needs.
Perpetual licensing, on a per node basis, is available upon negotiation for both Riak Enterprise and Riak CS Enterprise. For more information Contact Us.
Basic, Starter, Enterprise, and Enterprise Plus have a term of one year, set to auto-renew.
We have put together a number of resources to ensure a smooth transition to Riak and/or Riak CS. Here are a few of the resources available to expedite your learning process:
For additional questions, we also have the Riak Mailing List and IRC channel.
Basho has expanded the product portfolio to better fit the needs of the growing user base, including startups. Both Riak Starter and Riak Test Drive are great, low cost entry offerings for startups. Basho encourages startups to implement Riak early if they require a highly available platform.
