Not on the current edition
This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today.

Trial ? Worth pursuing. It is important to understand how to build up this capability. Enterprises should try this technology on a project that can handle the risk.
Riak is a distributed key-value store that is schema-less and data-type agnostic. It can be put to good use in write-heavy projects to store data such as sessions, shopping carts and streaming logs - whilst it retains the ability to perform complex queries in a full-text search. The distributed cluster can self-recover without a single master, has tuneable consistency and availability settings and can do collision detection and resolution if needed - all of which can be particularly helpful in high availability environments.

Riak is a distributed key-value store that is schemaless and data-type agnostic. It can be put to good use in write heavy projects to store data such as sessions, shopping carts and streaming logs. The ability of the distributed cluster to self recover, distribute data across the cluster with tunable consistency and availability settings, do collision detection and resolve those if needed can be helpful in high availability environments and provide interesting solutions in the architecture.
