Riak is a distributed, fault-tolerant, highly-available, scalable datastore created by Basho Technologies. Of the many choices available for implementation, the Basho team chose Erlang/OTP for its simple and powerful ability to describe distributed systems. Bryan will present Riak (what it is and why it's interesting) and discuss a few of the aspects, both positive and negative, of implementing in Erlang.
