Riak with Embedded Erlang

The guys from Basho, producers of Riak, have just posted about a new way of running Riak running in a fully self-contained embedded node environment.

In case you are wondering what’s so interesting about this, the video below will walk you from Riak’s compilation to the different benefits of running Riak in this mode. The one that sounded important to me is that now thanks to the lack of dependencies starting more nodes (note: on similar hardware) will be much easier. And as I was writing in The New Dimension of NoSQL Scalability: Complexity, reducing operational complexity is very important for the NoSQL systems.
