Riak Cloud Storage released under Apache 2 license

Riak Cloud Storage (Riak CS) is a storage software which can be used to build public or private Cloud storage systems. It is built atop Riak, a distributed database system developed by Basho Technologies, a outfit based in Cambridge, Massachusetts (USA).

Yesterday, the company announced that Riak CS has been released under the Apache 2 license and scheduled a webcast for April 2 (2013).

Riak CS offers a highly available, fault-tolerant storage, with support for large objects (up to 5 GB) and multipart uploading, an API and authentication system that is S3-compatible, multi-tenancy and per-user reporting.

Aside from the freely downloadable Riak CS, there is also Riak CS Enterprise, which offers a few more features, like multi-datacenter replication, monitoring, and 24×7 support.
