The free Riak AMI available on the AWS Marketplace has been updated to the latest version, Riak 1.3.1.

In Riak 1.3, we introduced:

  • Active Anti-Entropy
  • Updates to Riak Control
  • Expanded IPv6 support
  • Improved MapReduce
  • Simplified Log Management

Riak 1.3.1 includes all these features with some additional changes enumerated in the release notes.

For those of you currently using Riak on AWS, or interested in testing Riak on AWS, the AMI makes installation and configuration much easier. We see open source and Riak Enterprise users leverage AWS both as their primary infrastructure and to support hybrid implementations.

Installation instructions for the AMI are available on in our docs.
