re: Basho Embraces OpenStack With Riak Cloud Storage
"Cassandra has a reputation for being challenging at high scale, but with Riak you can add nodes and servers to a cluster and everything is automatically balanced within minutes," he said." This isn't correct. Cassandra (version 1.2 and above) contains virtual nodes that keep a cluster automatically balanced when new nodes are added. Moreover, creating new clusters, adding/removing nodes, and more can all be done visually through OpsCenter, which is free.
