Basho Shapes NoSQL Industry
The Internet of Things (IoT) connected devices continue to generate data at an astonishing rate. Organizations must now determine how to quickly turn their data into useable insights that will drive growth. Enterprise-grade solutions must be able scale along with organizations without sacrificing speed or agility. Throughout 2015, Basho advanced the state of the industry by offering organizations the tools they need to thrive in the information age:

  • Basho unveiled Riak®TS software, a distributed NoSQL database architected to aggregate and analyze massive amounts of sequenced, unstructured data generated from the Internet of Things (IoT) and other time series data sources. As more and more enterprise applications collect IoT data, specifically time series data from sensors, they need fast, reliable and scalable read and write performance. To best accomplish this, the data must be stored, queried and analyzed together. Unlike traditional databases, Riak TS is built to store and retrieve time series data with enhanced read and write performance. This month Basho launched Riak TS 1.1, the general availability (GA) release with several feature enhancements.
  • Basho and Cisco collaborated to develop a framework enabling Riak KV to run on Apache Mesos, bringing operational efficiency and high-elasticity to IoT and big data services. Riak KV is Basho's flagship NoSQL database that enables enterprises to respond to billions of data requests on thousands of servers, without inducing downtime. The integration with Mesos, an open-source resource manager from the Apache Software Foundation, automates the data center infrastructure beneath Riak KV instances. Pairing Mesos with Riak's own automation and orchestration technology allows enterprise businesses to deploy distributed data services at global scale.
  • Earlier in the year, Basho announced the Basho® Data Platform, developed to simplify the operation and integration challenges of deploying and managing Big Data, IoT and hybrid cloud applications. The Basho Data Platform integrates Riak databases with Apache Spark for in-memory analytics, Redis caching for increased performance and Apache Solr for enhanced query capabilities, significantly enhancing productivity for development and operations teams.
  • Basho applauded its large community through the Taishi Community Recognition Program. The Program recognizes individuals who have made contributions the open source distributed computing landscape. Taishi acknowledges developers not only for their technical contributions but for the altruistic sense of public service each member exhibits.
