Basho Technologies

Basho Technologies is the creator and developer of Riak, an open-source distributed database that provides extreme high-availability, fault-tolerance, and operational simplicity. Riak has rapidly gained adoption throughout the Fortune 100 and has become foundational to many of the world’s fastest-growing Web-based, mobile and social networking applications.

In early 2008, Basho founders were inspired by the tenets outlined in the Amazon Dynamo paper. The paper defined essential data storage requirements to ensure an “always-on” customer experience. With over 100 employees today, Basho has amassed one of the largest pools of engineers devoted exclusively to distributed systems software. Through these efforts, Basho’s software has earned the respect of a large and growing worldwide community of influential programmers, IT architects and academics.

Today, Basho offers open-source and commercial editions of Riak. Riak Enterprise extends Riak with additional features, including multi-data center replication, and provides customers with 24×7 customer support. In 2012, Basho launched Riak CS to help customers build public and private cloud storage platforms. Riak CS extends Riak by enabling multi-tenancy, large object support, and featuring an S3 compatible API.
