We're back with yet another Recap.

Big news for the week: SoftLayer now offers Riak and Riak Enterprise out of the box in their bare metal server hosting environment. Big news for everyone at RICON East or NYC environs is that SoftLayer is sponsoring the after party, so if you somehow can't make the conference but you're in the area and want to absorb the deep thoughts free beer, register for the party at Hudson Terrace.
