From MongoDB to Riak at Shareaholic

Robby Grossman talked at Boston Riak meetup about Shareaholic’s migration from MongoDB to Riak and their requirements and evaluation of top contenders: HBase, Cassandra, Riak.

Why not MongoDB?

  • working set needs to fit in memory
  • global write lock blocks all queries despite not having transactions/joins
  • standbys not “hot”

Bullet point format pros and cons for HBase, Cassandra, and Riak are in the slides.
