We're excited to announce the latest version of Riak. Join us on 3/14 for a summary of the major enhancements in Riak 1.3!
- Introduced Active Anti-Entropy. Riak now has active anti-entropy. In distributed systems, inconsistencies can arise between replicas due to failure modes, concurrent updates, and physical data loss or corruption. Pre-1.3 Riak already had several features for repairing this "entropy," but they all required some form of user intervention. Riak 1.3 introduces automatic, self-healing properties that repair entropy on an ongoing basis.
- Improved Riak Enterprise’s multi-datacenter replication performance: New advanced mode for multi-datacenter replication capabilities, with better performance, more TCP connections, and easier configuration.
- Improved graphical user experience. Riak Control, the user interface for managing and monitoring Riak, has a brand new look.
- Expanded IPv6 support. IPv6 support in Riak now is supported by all interfaces.
- Improved MapReduce. Riak MapReduce has improved back-pressure to reduce the risk of overwhelming endpoint processes during large tasks.
- Simplified log management. Riak can now optionally send log messages to syslog.
