Exploring Riak’s Service Architecture

For decades we’ve known that modularity, loose coupling, and service orientation allow for the construction of large software systems that can be reasonably maintained and extended. In this talk, Steve explores from a services perspective the architecture of Riak, the open source distributed database from Basho Technologies, focusing on how it achieves fault tolerance and high availability based on modularity, supervision, replication, and message passing between services, as well as how it integrates subsystems written in different programming languages. He also discusses how Erlang, the language used to implement most of Riak, facilitates the construction of service-oriented systems.
