Local Development with Riak CS

Local Development with Riak CS

Riak CS (Cloud Storage) [0] is simple, open source storage software built on top of Riak [1]. Riak CS provides multi-tenant, large object storage that can be used to build public or private clouds, or utilized as highly-available storage to power applications and services.

But for today, all you’ll care about is how to get Riak CS running locally so that you can bootstrap an app and talk to it via its S3-compatible API. This talk will provide an introduction to Riak CS, examples of how to talk to it from different programming languages and tools, and a walk-through of how to spin up a local instance using Vagrant [2] and Chef [3].
