  • Query the cluster using basic Key/Value, Links, 2i, and Map/Reduce
  • Understand deployment and performance considerations
  • Evaluate application Access Patterns
  • Consider data modeling implications in a distributed system

This training will also go over a number of topics, including:

  • Introduction to Riak
  • Basic Querying
  • Riak Under-the-Hood
  • Deployment Considerations
  • Performance Tuning
  • Monitoring/Troubleshooting
