Presentation: "Riak Use Cases: Dissecting the Solutions to Hard Problems"

Track: Private Clouds / Time: Thursday 11:30 - 12:20 / Location: Glazen Zaal

Many technology case studies are predictably simple – covering problems, solutions and the benefits received by the user. However, the rose-colored lens of marketing departments all too often glosses over the actual hard work and tough decisions needed to get to the desired result. This session intends to take a deeper look at some popular use cases around Riak – delving deeper into the configurations and the trade-offs made by the users. Attendees of this session will come away with a greater understanding of the flexibility of Riak, as well as how Riak solves serious data problems in interesting ways, and learn where Riak might not be the best fit.
