Basho Technologies is the creator and developer of Riak, a distributed database (sometimes categorized as a NOSQL database) that provides extreme high-availability, fault-tolerance, and operational simplicity, and Riak CS, a cloud-based object storage system that sits on top of Riak. Riak has rapidly gained adoption throughout the Fortune 100 and has become foundational to many of the world’s fastest-growing Web-based, mobile and social networking applications, as well as cloud service providers offering public, private and hybrid solutions.


Businesses are increasingly requesting integrated and engineered stacks, pre-engineered hardware and software-integrated solutions that offer both higher performance benefits while simultaneously reducing operational costs and complexity. By partnering with Seagate, BASHO is able to continue to help customers realize these ambitions through object and cloud storage technology engineered for maximum read/write performance and tuned for specific customer use cases.
