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.
