Big Data applications never stand alone. They’re highly distributed and comprised of multiple components that include NoSQL databases, caching and in-memory analytics as well as separate configuration and resource management. Just keeping it all running and available takes a considerable commitment of effort and resources.
The Riak Data Platform takes the difficulty out of doing this by integrating Riak with Add-on Service Instances so you can:
Integrate memory analytics with Spark.
Achieve high availability and auto-sharding with Redis.
Write it like Riak; query it like Solr.
