A few weeks ago, we hosted a webinar with 451 Research entitled, “Beyond NoSQL – Distributed Databases in Production.” This webinar featured Matt Aslett (Research Director at 451 Research), Bobby Patrick (EVP and CMO at Basho Technologies), and Wes Jossey (Systems Engineer at Tapjoy).
During this one-hour webinar, we discuss the history of NoSQL, the current NoSQL landscape, and then dive into Basho’s Riak. Wes Jossey also presents a case study from Riak User, Tapjoy, about how they use Riak as the cornerstone of their data management strategy. Finally, we wrap up with a look at what’s to come with Riak 2.0.

Each year, 451 Research hosts an event called the Hosting and Cloud Transformation Summit. This two day event brings together a compelling combination of executives and practitioners in the hosting, cloud computing, datacenter, and Internet infrastructure sectors. The sessions are a combination of industry perspective and primary research designed to continue to educate the industry about technology trends and considerations for the upcoming year.
We are pleased that Bobby Patrick, Basho CMO, is joining Marco Coulter, Vice President of the Info Pro, 451 Research, and Dave Wright, CEO, SolidFire in a panel discussion entitled Profiting from Cloud Storage in an Era of Software-Defined Everything. Their panel will take place today (September 25th) at 12:25pm.
To quote the abstract:
“Storage is well understood as an essential part of the IT stack, but less well known is the role it could play in transforming a service provider’s ability to deliver valuable new services to customers. This event will provide an overview of how emerging approaches to ‘software defined storage’ are helping service providers cost-effectively offer everything from hosting mission critical apps in the cloud to secure file sync and share.”
Since we open-sourced Riak CS, we have spent a fair amount of time working with service providers seeking to supplement their portfolio with an object storage service offering. This is, by no means, the extent of Riak CS adoption. It does, however, represent a compelling market segment and the discussion about service providers continuing to supplement their core offerings with additional services is one that is well worth having.
For those of you not able to attend this session, we will be sharing a recording at a later date.

Basho is excited to share 451 Research’s report on Riak CS and last week’s code release to open source. In this report, analysts Simon Robinson and Matt Aslett state that they are “not surprised that Basho has opted to take this route for Riak CS, and the move should help grow its community – not to mention increase its funnel of prospects – at a critical time in the evolution of what remains a nascent market.”
