Is Riak appropriate for website metrics?

Sorry if this has been asked before - I couldn't find a searchable
archive of this list.
I was told to ask this list whether or not Riak would be appropriate for
tracking our site's metrics. We are currently using Redis for this but
are at the point where we need both clustering and m/r capability, and
on the surface, Riak looks to fit this bill (we already use Erlang
elsewhere in our app, so that's an additional plus).
The records are pretty small and can be representated easily in json. An
"created_at": "2011/04/08 17:09:40 -0700"
We currently have around 25 million records similar to this one, and are
adding 4-5 million more each month.
Is Riak appropriate for this use case? Are there any gotchas I need to
be aware of?
