Riak, PHP, and the Death of Service Outages


7:00PM - Meet, Greet & Eat

7:30PM - Main Presentation

Followed by Q&A


An overview of how Riak and RiakCS can help you build and deploy applications that are highly-available, fault-tolerant, and are ready to scale when you are.  We’ll talk about some of the core functionality of the Riak distributed key-value store, some of the common use-cases we see in production at our customers, how we use Riak as the foundation for solving large object storage in RiakCS, and what new tools are coming in Riak 2.0 for building the next generation of data storage solutions.


Nathan Aschbacher is obsessed with building scalable high-availability systems and loves sharing his accrued knowledge and experience with others. More importantly he is obsessed with building them in such a way that they don't require an army of sysadmins and devops personnel.

    Even after lots of pizza, the entire presentation held my interest and there were great questions! Riak has become an intriguing choice.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
