The Linux Users' Group of Davis (LUGOD) will be holding the following meeting:
September 17, 2012
7:00pm - 9:00pm
"Riak distributed NoSQL database"
Daniel Reverri, Client Architect, Basho Technologies, Inc.
Riak is an open source, highly scalable, fault-tolerant distributed
NoSQL database, implementing the principles from Amazon's Dynamo paper.
Different than traditional relational databases and other NoSQL
non-relational databases, Riak offers a number of unique benefits
to users: it operates in highly-distributed environments ('the
cloud'); it is master-less (no single point of failure); it is highly
fault-tolerant; it makes data highly available; it scales simply and
intelligently; it is incredibly stable; its simple design makes for
a lower cost of operations.
About the Speaker:
Daniel Reverri is Client Architect at Basho Technologies, which
offers products and services based on Riak. Their customers include
fast-growing web businesses and large Fortune 500 enterprises.
Founded in 2008 by a group of engineers and executives from
Akami Technologies, Inc., Basho is heardquartered in
Cambridge, Massachusetts, with offices in San Francisco, CA,
Reston, Virginia, and London, England.
