Amazon DynamoDB and other cloud-based NoSQL stores might want to take a look at the competitive new features that Riak Cloud Storage is offering in version 1.4, which was released this week.  Here's four main highlights from the non-fluff news release that Basho sent me:

  • Integration with Keystone Authentication: Riak CS 1.4 supports OpenStack’s Keystone authentication service, which allows for a more seamless experience when sharing user credentials across the two services.

  • Compatibility with the OpenStack Object Storage API: OpenStack users can integrate Riak CS 1.4 for object storage in an OpenStack deployment.

  • Improved Users API: These improvements give operators greater flexibility in managing user information, while also improving the agility and responsiveness of Riak CS.

  • Enhanced multi-datacenter replication: Replication performance is improved through increased storage efficiencies and multiple TCP connections between clusters.

My contact at Basho says that Riak CS's main selling points are Amazon S3-compatibility, high availability, operational simplicity, and ease-of-scale.
