The Basho guys, producers of Riak, have published their first podcast covering “Scaling out with Riak and Riak Search”. You can listen to it ☞ here (the podcast has about 12 minutes) or download the mp3 file from ☞ here.
Here are my notes on “Scaling out with Riak and Riak Search”
- “we are all Google in our own minds”
- except being or becoming a buzzword, scaling out represents the relationship between costs and associated benefits. It reflects the predictability of costs of getting bigger and going faster
- scaling out means both up (adding more resources) and down (removing resources)
- NoSQL solutions should try to provide easier solutions for dealing with spikes (including operational simplicity)
Below you can watch Justin Sheehy’s talk on “riak: Control your data, don’t let it control you”, presented at NoSQL East, Atlanta (45 min):
