Erlang Solutions, Ltd. and Basho Technologies, Inc. Enter Broad Partnership to Deliver Scalable, Fault Tolerant Applications to a Global Market.

Enormous opportunity as relational database model begins to fail under the strain of Big Data and the Internet.

Erlang Solutions, Ltd., the leading provider of Erlang services, and Basho Technologies, the makers of Riak, a high-availability data store written in Erlang, today announced they have entered into a multi-faceted partnership to deliver scalable, fault tolerant applications built on Riak, to the global market.   Erlang OTP, an Ericsson open source technology, has found application in a new generation of fault tolerant use from companies like Facebook and Amazon.

“Erlang Solutions constantly seeks out new technologies and services to bring to its clients,” said Marcus Taylor, CEO of Erlang Solutions. “With Basho, we add not just the Riak software, but a partner to help us build an ecosystem of Erlang-based high-availability applications.”

The partnership has three major components:  1) both companies develop and support training and certification,  2) Erlang Solutions architects, load tests, and builds Riak-based applications for clients, and Erlang Solutions provides Basho clients with training, systems design, prototyping, and development services.

“Erlang Solutions is globally recognized as the business thought leaders in the Erlang community,” said Earl Galleher, Basho Technologies Chairman and CEO.   “Our current and future customers now have access to a new tier of professional services and we help Erlang Solutions push Erlang further into the mainstream market.”

With this partnership, Erlang Solutions now represents Basho Technologies in Europe for services and distribution.  The teams will focus on high growth markets like mobile telephony, social media and e-commerce applications where current Relational Database Systems (RDBMS) solutions are struggling to keep up.

“Look at the explosive growth of SMS IM traffic,” said Francesco Cesarini, founder of Erlang Solutions, “and the cost to scale traditional infrastructure. Basho’s Riak helps clients contain these costs while increasing reliability. An ecosystem of high-availability solutions is forming and the relationship between Erlang Solutions and Basho Technologies will soon expand to include other partners and richer solutions.”
