Why Riak Matters, by John E. Vincent (@lusis)
John will explain a bit about why Riak matters as part of the bigger picture of systems engineering, especially distributed systems.
At RICON 2012, enStratus spoke about the pros and cons of moving from a transactional to an eventually consistent persistence model and the process of moving to Riak. enStratus has been running Riak in production since Q4 of 2012.
