Exploring Riak's Service Architecture

  • Steve Vinoski
  • 00:51:42

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.

  • Steve Vinoski is an architect at Basho Technologies in Cambridge, MA, USA. He is a senior member of the IEEE and a member of the ACM. Steve is regarded as an expert in the areas of middleware and distributed computing systems, topics for which he has authored or co-authored over 80 articles, papers, and a book.
