Mobile platforms and applications need to provide low-latency user experiences that can scale quickly and support highly concurrent user access. That is why so many mobile applications have selected Riak to handle their data.
To see if Riak is a fit for your mobile use case, we have put together a number of resources that showcase how mobile companies are using Riak to solve a variety of challenges. Below are some highlights:
The “Mobile on Riak” whitepaper provides a technical introduction of Riak, specifically for mobile needs.
Voxer has both a case study and a video that look at how they use Riak to support their massive, sudden growth.
Bump, one of the most popular mobile apps, has a case study that looks at why they chose Riak to store their user data, and a video that goes into more details about their data model.
Comcast uses Riak as the primary datastore for their “Highly-Available Object Storage System,” which is used by their mobile applications and websites. More details can be found in their case study and from their talk at RICON 2012.
On May 13-14, RICON East will take place in New York City – with tickets still available here. RICON is Basho’s series of distributed system conferences for developers. We first launched RICON last October at the sold out San Francisco show. This year, we have three conferences scheduled across the globe, with the first in New York.
RICON East will bring together developers, engineers, architects, and scientists to discuss Riak, as well as key emerging research areas and approaches to solving the challenges faced by the industry today.
Earlier this week, the confirmed speaker line-up was released and can be found here. Here’s a look at some of the speakers:
Shawn Gravelle, IT Architect at State Farm Insurance
Ed Laczynski, VP of Cloud Strategy and Architecture at Datapipe
Brian Akins, Chief Operations Engineer at Turner Broadcasting System
Sathish Gaddipati, VP of Enterprise Data at The Weather Channel
