This session introduces new Riak KV functionality called Secondary Indices. Secondary Indices allows a developer to retrieve Riak objects using a SQL-style query language that matches compound criteria against an object’s properties.
Currently, a developer coding outside of Riak’s key/value based access must maintain their own indexes into the data using links, other Riak objects, or external systems. This is straightforward for simple use cases, but can add substantial coding and data modeling for complex applications. By formalizing an approach and building index support directly into Riak KV, we remove this burden from the application developer while preserving Riak’s core benefits, including scalability and tolerance against hardware failure and network partitions.
The talk will cover usage, capabilities, limitations, and lessons learned.
Rusty Klophaus is a Senior Software Engineer at Basho Technologies where he focuses on building distributed, fault-tolerant applications to store and retrieve Big Data. He is currently on the core engineering team of Riak Search and is the lead engineer designing Secondary Indices. Before joining Basho, Rusty launched an Erlang-based startup; before that he managed multi-million dollar technology products and guided multiple project teams at an Internet advertising company based in New York City. When he’s not hacking, Rusty plays guitar and organizes the Hacker News Meetup Group of Washington, DC.
