Riak in Production at Voxer

Hi All,

We're going to do the next Riak meetup on June 20th. This one is extra special for a few reasons:

  • The team at Voxer will be talking about their large Riak cluster (details below)
  • We'll be meeting at Voxer's new San Francisco Office

As usual, we'll be providing the food and refreshments. Bring your hard questions and your use cases. There will plenty of time for discussion.



Riak in Production at Voxer

Matt Ranney and Ryan Sokol, Engineers, Voxer

Voxer relies on Riak as their primary database.  They have more than 50 machines dedicated to Riak to support their huge growth and user base, and this has made for an adventure in scaling.

Voxer engineers Matt Ranney and Ryan Sokol will talk about the Voxer architecture and how they use Riak at Voxer.  They will also spend some time talking about how they use Node.js and their open source Node.js client, node_riak.


Also, if you're interested in hacking on Riak at companies like Voxer, you should attend. They are hiring.

Hope to see you there. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Thorough and detailed talk, great engineering banter, burritos, and the best beer selection I've seen at any meetup. A++++++ would attend again!
