riak: All content about riak in NoSQL databases and polyglot persistence
A 3-part, a bit too high level for me, article about what is to be gained (and lost) when using Riak instead of a relational database:
What I always like about Basho’s posts is that they don’t shy away from covering the tradeoffs.

The proposal for Riak’s security, discussed there in the open:
Thus, I propose we add authentication/authorization/TLS and auditing to Riak, to make Riak more resilient to unauthorized access. In general, I took the design cues from PostgreSQL. Another goal was to make this applicable to riak_core, so any reliance on KV primitives or features are intentionally avoided.
Andrew Thomson, the author of the proposal, mentions PostgreSQL as a source of inspiration. Besides the normal topics, authentication, authorization, and auditing, the document has an Open questions section. If you care about Riak’s future security go and help out.

Basho has published the majority of the presentations from their RICON East 2013 event. I’ve been lucky to be at Ricon West 2012 and it was a fantastic conference. So I think you’ll really enjoy some of videos.
Here’s the list I would start with:
- Automatically Scalable Computation by Herchel Smith
- ZooKeeper for the skeptical architect by Camille Fournier
- Optimizing LevelDB for performance and scale by Matthew Von-Maszewki

On one side:
and on the other side:
- Riak Searching: Solr-like but custom prioprietary implementation
- MongoDB text search: custom prioprietary implementation
I’m not going to argue about the pros and cons of each of these approaches, but I’m sure you already know which of these approaches I’m in favor of.

Created by Ilja Iwas, Riak Browser is a Mac utility to work with Riak that supports the following operations:
- Store objects in a Riak database
- Retrieve objects stored in a Riak database
- Add and view secondary indexes
- Find stored object using secondary indexes
✚ You’ll need Xcode, but why not.
