I’ve just published a new guide on the docs site that takes you through building a small four node Riak database cluster on Brightbox Cloud. It covers server groups, firewalling, user data and more, so it’s a good introduction to a lot of our features.
Riak is an open source, highly scalable, fault-tolerant distributed database written in Erlang. It scales effortlessly so is a perfect fit with Brightbox Cloud. We’ve been using it internally for a few little projects and plan to make more use of it. Give it a go!
