In this workshop, attendees will learn everything they need to know about how to get an application up and running on Riak. This is intended to be a very hand-on session. Benjamin Black, who has done production work in Cassandra and Riak, will lead the workshop.
First, attendees will cover the use cases for various emerging database technologies (Basho’s Riak, Cassandra, CouchDB) and what factors to consider in choosing one of these databases for a production deployment attendees as they learn about Riak architecture and schema design fundamentals, install a Riak cluster, design a load and performance test for the cluster, and prepare the cluster for production launch.
