Scaling Riak to 25MM Ops/Day at Kiip

After a few months off, we have a great talk lined up for this month. The team at Kiip will be on-hand to share some details on their move to Riak and PostgreSQL from MongoDB. (See below for full details.)

We are also fortunate to have a great location for this month's meetup: Orange Silicon Valley. The meetup will get started at 7 so try to arrive on time.  Basho will be bringing the beer and pizza. Bring your hard questions.

Hope to see you on May 22nd.

Scaling Riak to 25MM Ops/Day at Kiip

Armon Dadgar, Software Engineer, Kiip

Scaling databases has always been a difficult problem. Next generation NoSQL solutions claim to replace the traditional vertical scaling solutions with horizontal scaling. At Kiip, we originally embraced MongoDB as the magic scaling solution, but quickly ran into engineering and design limitations prompting a search for other solutions. Ultimately, we chose to move to a split PostgreSQL + Riak stack. We'll discuss how we chose to use Riak, and what we learned doing the migration, modeling our data, and using Riak in production.

    Well prepared talk, good presenters. Unfortunately most of the lessons learned were things I had also learned from using Riak, but it was enjoyable. And, as always, thanks Basho for the pizza!

    All around, an excellent talk. Armon and Mitchel were great speakers with a well-prepared talk, and an honest take on their experiences with Ria.

    Great talk at a great location. Kiip did a great job explaining where they were, where they wanted to be and how they got there.

    I've noticed that Basho's very good about posting videos on the website -- will this be recorded for later?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
