A two-part article by Simon Buckle introducing the Riak HTTP API and using it with Riak pluggable Memory back-end as a caching service for a web application. Somehow I missed that Riak has a pluggable memory (non-persistent) storage. The only missing piece for making it a better caching solution would be having the option to set a per-key expiry/time-to-live (TTL) value. It might be interesting to experiment with using
Last-Modified HTTP headers to simulate this behavior. Has anyone tried it?

EngineYard’s Ines Sombra recorded a conversation with Mathias Meyer about NoSQL databases and their evolution towards more friendlier functionality, relational databases and their steps towards non-relational models, and a bit more on what polyglot persistence means.
Mathias Meyer is one of the people I could talk for days about NoSQL and databases in general with different infrastructure toppings and he has some of the most well balanced thoughts when speaking about this exciting space—see this conversation I’ve had with him in the early days of NoSQL. I strongly encourage you to download the mp3 and listen to it.
