Powerhouse Windows Azure + Riak

As Windows Azure has matured the IaaS Offering new possibilities have become available. One of those capabilities is the ability to run powerful distributed databases like Riak via IaaS Deployed OSs. In this session I'll cover the capabilities of Windows Azure and how this enables deployments of Riak, KV or CS, into Azure for multi-datacenter or single datacenter distributed systems cluster operations.

    Thanks everybody for coming out, had a great time getting the Riak Knowledge out to everyone! Thanks to Glenn Block for helping me out with my SSH issues & throwing down some awesome Windows Azure CLI skills. If anyone has questions about Riak or Windows Azure, feel free to ping me via Twitter @adron or here on Meetup. I'm sure Glenn would be happy to field Azure questions to, he's @gblock.

    Cheers, and thanks for having me out! If you're interested in learning more, going through the intro to Riak tutorial I'm running next week check out the Meetup events http://www.meetup.com/Seattle-Riak/events/105466452/ and http://www.meetup.com/Seattle-Riak/events/105409482/.
