Basho's Riak Cloud Storage Release is AWS S3-Compatible

  • submit to reddit

If they haven't already, Cloud leaders like Windows Azure and Amazon Web Services should start taking smaller competing platforms more seriously as companies start providing products to compete with established cloud-computing services.  The Basho team claims that Riak is "the world's most advanced distributed database," and today they announced the release of Riak Cloud Storage, which is designed to enable both public and private cloud services. 

Among its key features is compatibility with Amazon Web Services online storage web service S3 (Simple Storage Service).  This is enabled by an HTTP REST API that enables what the Riak team claims is easy storage and retrieval of data.  

Other features of Riak CS include the following:

  • Multi-tenancy
  • Reporting functionality of per-tenant usage data
  • Up to 5GB of Arbitrary Content Type Objects

Looks like it didn't take long for one of these smaller NoSQL companies to respond to Amazon's DynamoDB release.  This solution from Riak is a lot more complete and 'Amazonian' than some of the other NoSQL vendors who are just offering Heroku add-ons.

It will be interesting to see how cloud services like this that attach themselves to established cloud services will evolve as enterprises continue to adopt cloud-based technologies.

The major benefit of using bytecode is porting. However, the overhead of interpretation means that interpreted programs almost always run more slowly than programs compiled to native executables would. Just in Time compilers were introduced from an early stage that compile bytecodes to machine code during runtime. Thanks. Regards, green coffee berry extract

 Windows 8 provides heavier integration with online services from Microsoft and others. A user can now log in to Windows with a Microsoft account, formally known as a Windows Live ID, which can be used to access services and synchronize applications and settings between devices. Thanks.
