Today, Microsoft Open Technologies, Inc announced the public preview of VM Depot. Basho is pleased to participate in this launch. Available today, you can quickly deploy a virtual machine image, configured with an OSS Riak implementation from the VM Depot.

For more information on the VM Depot launch, check out the interoperability@Microsoft blog and follow @openatmicrosoft.

Ease of deployment is a common theme we hear from the community…ensuring Riak is available on your platform of choice is part of our purpose in supporting your deployment needs. Whether it’s quickly prototyping an internal application in the enterprise, deploying a hybrid cloud solution, or leveraging solely public cloud services, Riak is an excellent choice for solving your data-storage needs at scale.

If you need multi-datacenter replication and support, contact us to discuss Riak Enterprise on Azure.

Given that this is a public preview, installation documentation is forthcoming. When it is ready, and that will be soon, you can find it on our documentation portal. In the mean time, feel free to ask questions, or provide feedback, on the mailing list.
