A new version of Riak CS was announced last week at GigaOM Structure Data 2013 event. But what’s more important is that starting with this version Riak CS is available as open source under an Apache 2 license.
As for Riak itself, Basho will offer an Enterprise version under a commercial license, the main differentiator being multi-datacenter replication and 24x7 customer support. The same as for Riak.
While I went through most of the articles covering this announcement, I couldn’t find the answer to the most obvious question: what made Basho decide to go with the dual model for Riak CS?
On the other hand, it looks like this remains the most popular model in the company-backed open source world: open source products with enterprise versions providing unique features.

Hey, it looks like the NoSQL applications panel I’ve moderated at QCon SF 2011 went live minutes ago on InfoQ. Featuring Andy Gross (Basho), Frank Weigel (Couchbase), Matt Pfeil (DataStax), Michael Stack (StumbleUpon), Jared Rosoff (10gen), and yours truly.
It misses my opening jokes though ↩

Congratulations to the Basho guys for closing an additional $5m round of funding. According to Martin Schneider “the funds will be used to make Riak an even better product. We have some seriously awesome plans for additional features, platform capabilities, cloud tools etc.”
Riak already seems like a great product to me—there’s always place for improvements though. I’d say part of the money and a tad more effort should go into making Riak a more popular product.
Details: This is the second round raised this year after the $7.5m announced in June bringing it to a total of $12.5m. The new funding comes from an inside round. Past investors in Basho have included private equity firm Georgetown Partners and Danish systems integrator Trifork AS.
