Gaming, healthcare, and other web applications require Multi-cluster Replication to provide disaster recovery, data geo-locality, compliance with regulatory requirements, the ability to “burst” peak loads into public cloud infrastructure, and more. Riak KV Enterprise offers Multi-cluster Replication so that you can meet these business requirements.
Syncing data across clusters is complex. With Riak KV Enterprise Multi-cluster Replication, data automatically syncs across clusters.
One cluster acts as a primary, or source, cluster. This primary cluster replicates data to one or more secondary clusters, which are often located in other regions or countries. If the primary cluster goes down, a secondary cluster can automatically take over as primary.
In Multi-cluster Replication, there are two primary modes of operation — full-sync and real-time. In full-sync mode, a complete synchronization occurs between primary and secondary cluster(s). In real-time mode, continual, incremental synchronization occurs and replication is triggered by new updates.
When a globally distributed application must be fast and reliable, clusters must be replicated across the datacenter or across the globe. Riak KV provides enterprise-grade Multi-cluster Replication that ensures your customers get their data fast and that your application is always available.
Businesses must comply with regulatory requirements and ensure business continuity, even in the event of a serious failure. You will need effective and scalable cluster replication to keep your application up and running regionally or globally. In the event of a datacenter outage, Riak KV can direct requests to the backup cluster ensuring data availability.
Improve customer experiences
Users expect applications to be fast, which means data needs to be served quickly. Riak KV Enterprise Multi-cluster Replication enables you to serve data to your customers from whichever cluster is the closest and fastest ensuring a consistent customer experience.
Increase performance and scale
As your data grows, you need enterprise-scale cluster replication. Riak KV Multi-cluster Replication is designed to be reliable and scalable whether you need a secondary analytics cluster, or need data geo-located to serve low-latency content to users.

“We are excited to continue our relationship with Basho. Currently, we use Riak KV to support our interactive mobile platform that is delivered to clients across Europe. Using mobile phones, customers are able to interact with TV channels by voting, providing feedback, and participating in contests. All of which requires us to be operational 24/7 and capable of managing high-volume activities. Our nine nodes across two datacenters offer enterprise multi-datacenter capabilities and are incredibly stable. Riak KV continues to provide us with the scale, durability, and availability we need to succeed.”
