Basho Technologies, the creator and developer of Riak® KV and Riak® TS, the world's most resilient NoSQL databases, has announced the latest release of Basho Riak TS, version 1.3. Riak TS is the only enterprise-grade NoSQL database optimized for Internet of Things (IoT). The open source version enables developers to download the software for free and use it in production as well as make contributions to the code and develop applications around Riak TS. Enhancements to Riak TS make it quick, easy and cost-effective to spin up an instance to test new ideas and build IoT applications. In addition to making Riak TS available as open source software, version 1.3 expands support for SQL commands, enhances API support and provides support for shell commands. Riak TS Enterprise 1.3 also includes Multi-Cluster Replication.

Basho believes strongly in supporting the global distributed systems developer community, which spends their valuable time maintaining open source software to solve critical distributed infrastructure problems facing the industry. The Basho community at large also contributes projects directly to the Basho Labs Repository, a 100-percent community-driven repository to share code freely and regularly. Increasingly, IoT is generating time series data - data marked with a timestamp - from a variety of sources, such as sensors. The sheer volume of time series data these sources generates requires databases that can efficiently and reliably store and query time series data. Riak TS delivers on this need and allows both open source and commercial customers to perform the associated queries and transactions on time series data, while maintaining high availability and scale.

Riak TS 1.3 Offers High Availability, Massive Scalability and Cost-Effective Operations

Riak TS is built on Riak Core, a distributed systems framework known for its resilience, fault tolerance and horizontal scalability, that uses commodity hardware and simplicity of operational management. Its masterless architecture is designed for operational simplicity and high availability, even in the event of hardware failures or network partitions. As well as now being available as open source software, Riak TS enables:
* Fast storage and retrieval of time series data: As an enterprise time series database, Riak TS co-locates data together in the same physical part of the cluster based on time range. This enables faster queries so that your time series data is faster to read and analyze.
* Easy analysis of large data sets: Riak TS 1.3 enables enhanced SQL commands and range queries for unstructured and structured data so business analysts can more easily analyze data.
* Integration with complimentary stack technologies: Riak TS also seamlessly integrates with Apache Spark. The Spark connector efficiently retrieves data from Riak TS to Spark for in-memory distributed processing so the results can be stored back in Riak TS as needed. The ability to persist these results to Riak TS provides flexibility for future data processing or analysis. Riak TS also offers support for Spark Streaming, DataFrames and Spark SQL.
* Global availability: Riak TS Enterprise offers Multi-cluster Replication so that data stored in Riak TS can be replicated for backup clusters, analysis clusters, or for multiple datacenters. With Riak TS Enterprise, data can be replicated across the datacenter or across geographic areas, providing disaster recovery, data locality, compliance with regulatory requirements, the ability to "burst" peak loads into public cloud infrastructure and more.
* Enhanced support: The newest release also enhances support for APIs and SQL shell commands.
* Simplified development and deployment: AWS Amazon Machine Images (AMI) will be available for Riak TS, so enterprises can easily spin up Riak TS on AWS Workplace.
