Riak KV is a distributed NoSQL key-value database with advanced local and multi-cluster replication that guarantees reads and writes even in the event of hardware failures or network partitions.
NoSQL Key Value Databases
• Conflict-free replicated data types (CRDTs): flags, registers, counters, sets, and maps • Active Cluster Configuration – Achieve data locality by serving clients at low latency from the nearest datacenter • Availability Zones: Efficient multi-cluster replication and data redundancy within a geographic region • Key/value NoSQL data model provides flexibility with no pre-defined schema • Enhanced error logging and reporting • Automatic data compression using the Snappy compression library
Small (<50 employees), Medium (50 to 1000 Enterprise (>1001 employees)
What is best?
• Conflict-free replicated data types (CRDTs): flags, registers, counters, sets, and maps • Active Cluster Configuration – Achieve data locality by serving clients at low latency from the nearest datacenter • Availability Zones: Efficient multi-cluster replication and data redundancy within a geographic region
What are the benefits?

Riak KV is a distributed NoSQL key-value database with advanced local and multi-cluster replication that guarantees reads and writes even in the event of hardware failures or network partitions. With a key/value design that delivers powerful – yet simple – data models for storing massive amounts of unstructured data, Riak KV is built to handle a variety of challenges facing Big Data applications that include tracking user or session information, storing connected device data and replicating data across the globe. Riak KV automates data distribution across the cluster to achieve fast performance and robust business continuity with a masterless architecture that ensures high availability, and scales near linearly using commodity hardware so you can easily add capacity without a large operational burden. Riak KV provides the highly-available, low-latency data architecture required by modern messaging and chat applications. Riak KV’s masterless design ensures that database scalability is architected in from the outset of the design. Riak KV enables application processing of this data to generate useful conclusions and actionable information. It is designed to scale horizontally with commodity hardware, making it easy for administrators to grow the data collection repository without creating complex sharding. Riak KV is designed to not impose restrictions on the value, so session data can be encoded in many ways and can evolve without administrative changes to schemas. Riak KV is designed to never lose a write and to scale horizontally so that, even on peak days, all your user’s actions are completed seamlessly. Riak KV integrates with Apache Spark, Redis Caching, Apache Solr, and Apache Mesos to reduce the complexity of integrating and deploying other Big Data technologies. Riak KV excels in private, public, and hybrid cloud deployments.
