In the last post, we have installed Riak CS on a single node. For production, a deployment of five or more nodes is required for better performance, reliability. Riak has a default three times data replication mechanism and in smaller deployment the replication requirement may not be met properly and also it may compromise the fault-tolerance ability of the cluster. Fewer nodes will have higher workloads.

According to the documentation:

If you have 3 nodes, and require all 3 to...

So what’s my advice to users who want to learn about Eucalyptus? It’s pretty simple.

1. Get a tiny Euca cloud running. The perfect tool for this is eucadev.  If you’ve got a laptop that supports Vagrant, you’ve got a Euca cloud. It’s a small cloud, to be sure, but it’s got all of ...
