Im just taking a look at Riak - so far, it looks really great!
I have some questions around buckets, and how they correspond to the
traditional database and/or table found in RDBMS:
In the examples i've seen online, im not sure if a bucket semantically
corresponds to a "table" or a "database" in RDBMS ways of thinking. I
think its the former? If so, what is the best strategy for hosting
multiple "databases" on a single cluster of machines? Would one need
to create a whole bunch of separate Riak instances running on
Sorry if these are n00b questions or i've missed the point somehow,
but any advice would be most appreciated!
