basho_logo2Basho Technologies, the creator and developer of Riak® announced that Cisco will offer as a service Riak KV running on Apache Mesos bringing operational efficiency and high-elasticity to big data services so enterprises can scale with ease. The integration with Mesos, an open-source cluster manager, automates Riak KV NoSQL database to run effortlessly at full global data center scale, eradicating the challenges of deploying distributed systems and enabling efficient utilization of cloud resources.

Riak KV is a highly available, distributed database that remains operationally efficient at global Internet scale. By integrating with Mesos, customers don’t need to make guesses about the infrastructure needs of the Riak nodes as this is optimized by Mesos. With Riak KV managing the data tier and Mesos managing the underlying infrastructure, customers now have access to the most efficient and easily scalable distributed data platform. The integration also allows for true “push button” scale up/scale down as Mesos can aggregate and re-aggregate resources for/from Riak nodes. Users can write scripts to make scale up/down events automatic based on business logic. Providing, perhaps for the first time, the ability for enterprises to auto-scale a global, multi-data center database.

By integrating Riak KV with Mesos, we can seamlessly and efficiently manage the cloud resources required by the globally scalable NoSQL database, allowing us to provide the back-end for large-scale data processing, web, mobile and Internet-of-Things applications,” said Ken Owens, Chief Technical Officer at Cisco Intercloud Services. “We’re making it easier for customers to develop and deploy highly complex distributed applications for big data and IoT.”

Mesos, which provides efficient resource scheduling and sharing across distributed applications, decides how many resources to offer each framework, like Riak KV, and what application to execute on the available physical resources. With Mesos integration, users can easily scale an application from one instance to thousands of instances in minutes. Basho is developing an open source integration with Mesos that can be easily commercialized around a supported enterprise offering. Basho will also deliver the resource management capabilities of Mesos as a Core Service offering of the Basho Data Platform.

Companies using traditional architectures are struggling to accommodate the need for distributed applications and distributed data services,” said Dave McCrory, chief technical officer at Basho. “By combining Basho’s Riak KV with Mesos, we’re able to deliver an easy-to-deploy platform for real-time data processing and thereby enabling a new class of modern data center developers who can break free of infrastructure restraints to give rise to a whole new class of hyper-scale applications.”
