As companies look for new ways and techniques to improve their productivity many are turning to various software platforms.
Basho Technologies, creator and developer of Riak, a distributed NoSQL database software, has announced the release of the Basho Data Platform.
Developed to simplify the challenges of deploying and managing big data, Internet of Things (IoT) and hybrid cloud applications, Basho Data Platform is designed to enhance productivity for development and operations teams. According to the company, “the Basho Data Platform integrates Riak KV (formerly Riak), a distributed NoSQL database, and Riak S2 (formerly Riak CS), object storage software, 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.”
Features available in the platform include real-time analytics, integrated caching and Riak search among others.
“Big data applications like ours need to integrate and then deploy many different technology components,” said Martin Davies, CEO of technology at bet365. “As an existing user of Riak for its high availability and operational simplicity, we are keen to explore the Data Platform's promise to ease the complexity associated with integration and operations with other elements of our technology stack.”
