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.

  1. CAPTCHA / reCAPTCHA has been a problem for me until I just updated to Ubuntu 17.04. I can’t seem to sign on to anything because the CAPTCHA doesn’t even show up on the page. Preferences does not indicated an on/off switch for it either. I’m going to have to go back to 16.04 or even better 14.04LTS. I enjoy commenting in real time about everything especially politics, and science.

  2. You were indeed missing something. The fallback to text captcha was temporary. When this was released last year, a week or so later the text captcha made room for the image selector. This removed the last traces of the text captcha.

  3. I am trying for past two days to read and enter the letters in the recapcha. I never seen such code in my life in internet. What is that security. I wondered how Google is preparing such quality less product and wasting time and irritating people. Is it providing that much security?
    Please make it readable fore mate. It is not security question to answer and remember.


  4. Thanks for publishing and researching this. I thought I was crazy. No captcha yet we still prompt you for the old captcha…huh.
    I was thinking may be they are checking a time on the page factor because that is another way behind the scenes to test for automated form submitting.
