Riak - suited for analytics?

Hi, Riak sounds very interesting -
I have a couple of use cases and am trying to figure out if I should use
Cassandra or Riak -
My first is analytics - I was wondering how good of a fit Riak would be for
analytics. I.e. I want to bucketize my metrics and store aggregates for each
metric - i.e. I have a couple of hundred metrics and for each of them, I
have probably 1200 "columns" - which correspond to dates. Does Riak support
range/prefix queries? How well does it scale? What's the biggest system
that's out in production?

Thanks!
Florian
