Video: Introducing Yokozuna - Searching Riak With Solr

Databases are better when they can run themselves. CockroachDB is a SQL database that automates scaling and recovery. Check it out here.

 

Riak is a solid, highly-available, distributed data store, but its querying support leaves more to be desired. Solr is the exemplar in search with a highly-efficient index and myriad useful features. Put these two things together and you get the best of both worlds with little trade-off.

Yokozuna is an extension of Riak that tightly integrates Riak with Solr. Riak stores the data and Solr indexes it. In this talk Ryan will give a tour of Yokozuna: explaining how it works, discuss some challenges faced, show how it can be used, and perhaps compare it to similar solutions. If you are a user of Riak Search or are interested in alternative ways to index Riak data then this talk is for you.


Databases should be easy to deploy, easy to use, and easy to scale. If you agree, you should check out CockroachDB, a scalable SQL database built for businesses of every size. Check it out here.
