Basho partners with a wide range of companies to ensure there are many options to choose from when building out a database architecture with Riak. One aspect of our partners program is through Infrastructure. Our Infrastructure Partners create optimized Riak solutions that ensure high performance and efficiency, regardless of scale.
One of these partners is Brocade. Brocade helps organizations achieve critical business initiatives as they transition to a world where applications and information reside anywhere. Basho’s Riak and Brocade’s VCS Fabric Technology can be leveraged together to deliver a highly available, fault-tolerant, predictable, and easy-to-use distributed system.
In addition to partnering, we also jointly validated the performance of Brocade VDX switches in a Riak deployment. Testing teams ran 30-minute benchmarks of reads and read/writes against the cluster as the number of nodes grew from five to ten. The tests showed consistently high network throughput and consistently low latency. These results are indicative of highly efficient and predictable performance from the underlying network.

We released Riak 1.3, Riak 1.4, and the Technical Preview of Riak 2.0 this year. These releases added such features as Active Anti-Entropy, revamped Riak Control, queryability improvements, Riak Data Types, and much more. Be on the lookout for the general release of Riak 2.0 early next year.
This year, we expanded RICON, Basho’s distributed systems conference, to both RICON East and RICON West. These were both sold out conferences that featured speakers from bitly, Comcast, Google, Netflix, Salesforce, The Weather Company, Turner Broadcasting, Twitter, and many more.
We drastically increased the number of Basho partners in 2013. For a full list of partners, check out the Partnerships Page. Some key ones to note include Tokyo Electron Device, SoftLayer, and Seagate.
