I’m not really sure how I’ve missed the release of Riak 0.12.0 last week. The ☞ release notes are listing over 30 enhancements and bug fixes. Another important update coming with Riak 0.12.0 is the improved failure recovery:
Riak now uses a new and improved mechanism for determining whether a node is fully online and ready to participate in Riak operations. This is especially important in failure recovery situations, as it allows the storage backend to complete a full integrity check and repair process.
Riak is getting closer to celebrate 1 year and there were more than 12 releases during this year. That’s a nice pace for a project!
A simple in-process key/value document store for node.js. nStore uses a safe append-only data format for quick inserts, updates, and deletes. Also a index of all documents and their exact location on the disk is stored in in memory for fast reads of any document. This append-only file format means that you can do online backups of the datastore using simple tools like rsync. The file is always in a consistent state.
nStore can be found on ☞ GitHub
