The June Database Seminar will be on *THURSDAY*, June 20. We'll be at
Engine Yard. Since this group hasn't been big on food, we'll just have
some light refreshment once again.
Dave Parfitt will talk about Riak.
Dave Parfitt is a Software Engineer at Basho Technologies, where he
writes Erlang, Java, Ruby and OCaml code for Riak Enterprise
multi-datacenter replication. He'll be discussing eventual consistency
and the Riak distributed database.
Riak is an open-source, masterless, distributed key/value database. Riak
replicates and retrieves data intelligently so it is available for read
and write operations, even in failure conditions. You can lose access to
many nodes due to network partition or hardware failure without losing
data. Riak automatically distributes data around the cluster and yields
a near-linear performance increase as you add capacity.
Come one! Come all! Please do rsvp at
