bet365 to save Riak
'It is our intention to open source all of Basho's products and all of
the source code that they have been working on. We'll do this as quickly as
we are able to organise it, and we would appreciate some input from the
community on how you would like this done.'

Will the last person at Basho please turn out the lights? • The Register
Basho, once a rising star of the NoSQL database world, has faded away to almost nothing [...] According to sources, the company, which developed the Riak distributed database, has been shedding engineers for months, and is now operating as a shadow of its former self, as at least one buy-out has fallen through.

Basho LevelDB supports tiered storage
Tiered storage is turning out to be a pretty practical trick to take advantage of SSDs:
The justification for two types/speeds of storage arrays is simple. leveldb is extremely write intensive in its lower levels. The write intensity drops off as the level number increases. Similarly, current and frequently updated data tends to be in lower levels while archival data tends to be in higher levels. These leveldb characteristics create a desire to have faster, more expensive storage arrays for the high intensity lower levels. This branch allows the high intensity lower levels to be on expensive storage arrays while slower, less expensive storage arrays to hold the higher level data to reduce costs.

Basho and Seagate partner to deliver scale-out cloud storage breakthrough
Ha, cool. Skip the OS, write the Riak store natively to the drive. This sounds frankly terrifying ;)
The Seagate Kinetic Open Storage platform eliminates the storage server tier of traditional data center architectures by enabling applications to speak directly to the storage system, thereby reducing expenses associated with the acquisition, deployment, and support of hyperscale storage infrastructures. The platform leverages Seagate’s expertise in hardware and software storage systems integrating an open source API and Ethernet connectivity with Seagate hard drive technology.

Basho | Alert Logic Relies on Riak to Support Rapid Growth
'The new [Riak-based] analytics infrastructure performs statistical and correlation processing on all data [...] approximately 5 TB/day. All of this data is processed in real-time as it streams in. [...] Alert Logic’s analytics infrastructure, powered by Riak, achieves performance results of up to 35k operations/second across each node in the cluster – performance that eclipses the existing MySQL deployment by a large margin on single node performance. In real business terms, the initial deployment of the combination of Riak and the analytic infrastructure has allowed Alert Logic to process in real-time 7,500 reports, which previously took 12 hours of dedicated processing every night.'

Twitter discussion here: https://twitter.com/fisherpk/status/294984960849367040 , which notes 'heavily cached SAN storage, 12 core blades and 90% get to put ops', and '3 riak nodes, 12-cores, 30k get heavy riak ops/sec. 8 nodes driving ops to that cluster'. Apparently the use of SAN storage on all nodes is historic, but certainly seems to have produced good iops numbers as an (expensive) side-effect...
