Riak KV
Highly scalable, fault tolerant distributed open source database

Unrivalled distributed NoSQL and object storage for your business

In contrast to traditional relational databases and other “NoSQL” (non-relational) databases, Riak offers enormous availability, replication and monitoring – all in a highly distributed deployment. Available in both open source and commercial versions, Riak provides outstanding read and write availability to enterprise, web and mobile applications.


Features and functionalities


Riak has no single point of failure.

Simply scalable

Riak’s scaling is simple and intelligent – you can add nodes to clusters with just a few commands and no downtime.


Because of Riak’s distributed design, even if you lose access to Riak nodes, you won't lose data.


Riak is designed to operate in highly distributed environments, such as the cloud.


Riak's open source technology helps you cut down on the cost of implementation, maintenance and upgrades.

Incredibly stable

Many see Riak as the “building block” of a cloud data infrastructure.

Highly Awailable

Riak's high availability makes it ideal for read-and-write-intensive web applications.

How it works

An application connects with Riak through protocol buffers or using the RESTful interface. The Riak clusters appear as single server to the application. For efficiency and speed, Riak supports indexing and provides search and MapReduce capabilities. Although data is kept across servers within Riak cluster, you can also enable Riak replication between two different clusters.
