Basho Introduces Riak CS 1.5

Basho, the creator and developer of Riak, the industry leading distributed NoSQL database, today introduced Riak CS 1.5 and Riak CS 1.5 Enterprise, Basho’s distributed object storage software. Riak CS (Cloud Storage) is open source software built on top of Riak, used to build public or private clouds, or, as reliable storage to power applications and services. Riak CS 1.5 delivers new features that improve operation, performance and scalability. Basho continues to offer enterprise-class features in Riak CS Enterprise, which includes multi-datacenter replication, world class 24 by 7 support and flexible pricing model.

Companies dealing with large amounts of unstructured data like videos, images and documents are adopting cloud object storage so that data is highly available through a seamlessly scalable architecture. Businesses in industries such as broadcasting and telecommunications are relying on stability, integration functionality and performance of Riak CS to efficiently store, organize and access data while making it simple to manage.

“We offer our customers affordable and scalable cloud storage solutions built on Basho’s Riak CS,” said Makoto Oya, vice director of IDC Frontier. “The enhanced Amazon S3 compatibility and ability to scale well into the multi-petabyte level in Riak CS 1.5 will help us better support the rapid growth we are seeing in our storage business.”

I-NET Corp, a cloud data center service headquartered in Japan, uses Riak CS for its cloud service called Dream Cloud® and is looking to achieve further cost efficiency thanks to the increased scalability capabilities in Riak CS 1.5.

“Cloud-based object storage is ideal for storing our customer’s growing business-critical data, and we have relied on the excellent performance, cost efficiency and high reliability of Riak CS for the I-NET Dream Cloud®,” said Tsutomu Taguchi, senior managing director, business group of I-NET Corp. “Riak CS already provides us with high availability and now that Riak CS is further optimized to scale, we believe that Riak CS 1.5 delivered by Basho will drive even higher adoption of Dream Cloud®.”

New features enhance performance for object storage to store increasing amounts of data worldwide

Basho delivers new functions in Riak CS that include:

  • Additional Amazon S3 compatibility: Expanded storage API compatibility with S3 includes features such as multi-object delete, put object copy, and cache control headers for more flexible integration with content delivery networks (CDNs).
  • Performance improvement in garbage collection process: Delivered especially for customers with high rate of object updates and deletes, Riak CS now more quickly reaps objects flagged for garbage collection.
  • New, simplified administrative features: New and consolidated admin features make organizational tasks easier for activities such as cluster management, monitoring and troubleshooting.
  • Multi-cluster support: Technology preview for increased scalability of Riak CS Enterprise by allowing multiple Riak clusters to reside under a single CS namespace, thereby expanding the maximum capacity of a single cluster.

“Providing the strongest key value solution and object store means responding to customer needs and demands attentively,” said Dave McCrory, CTO of Basho. “With Riak CS 1.5 Enterprise, new features are delivered as requested by our customers. We are committed to make it easier to consume cutting edge versions of Riak and will continue to do this by executing a more iterative approach in how we release Riak.”

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
