Europe is host to a number of conferences during the upcoming weeks. A fair amount of the Basho team will be present as speakers, exhibitors and attendees. Here’s the full list.
Introducing the Riak CS for Startups program, which provides early-stage companies with access to Basho’s simple, multi-tenant, distributed cloud storage at a significant discount.
I’m excited to announce that Matt Rannay and the team at Voxer just open-sourced their production node.js client for Riak, node_riak.
Today we are introducing something called the Riak Community Release Notes. Much like codebases grow and evolve, so does a community and its accomplishments. So why not present and chronicle what the community does in the same way that you would with a piece of code? The Riak Community Release Notes are an attempt to do just that.
BashoChats 003 happened at BashoWest this past Tuesday. The crowd was standing-room only, and we were lucky enough to have Ryan Kennedy, Yammer’s Director of Core Services, talking about some of the impressive work that he and his colleagues are doing with Berkeley DB.
Here at Basho we want to make sure that your Riak implementations are set up from the beginning to succeed. While you can use the Riak Fast Track to quickly set up a 3-node dev/test environment, we recommend that all production deployments use a minimum of 5 nodes, ensuring you benefit from the architectural principles that underpin Riak’s availability, fault-tolerance and scaling properties.
If you’re running Riak and want to tell the world, we now have official Riak badges you can display proudly.
The Basho team will be attending the Erlang Factory conference in San Francisco this week, as well as hosting the afterparty on Thursday March, 29th. We hope to see you at Basho Bash West 2012!
Ted Nyman is the lead engineer at Simple, a startup that is changing the way people bank. Ted was kind enough to come out to BashoChats last week in San Francisco to share his views on building scalable, JVM-based services that just work.
