Riak’s highly available nature makes it ideal for cloud environments where any of your resources may disappear without notice but your database must still be up. Unfortunately databases need IO and the cloud, where everything is virtualized, is not the most performant place to run one. Getting started with Riak in the cloud brings a different set of assumptions than hardware based installations and we’ll go through them together.

Come hear the tale of 2 engineers who have no hardware but decided to try Riak for a production-critical Ruby application. We’ll tell you how we ported our application from MySQL, rolled it to production, and the lessons we learned while running Riak in the Cloud.
