Riak is a multi-master database, your client will create a connection 
pool to all nodes in the cluster.
For production it is recommended at least 5 nodes in the cluster, to get 
started, I guess you should first read some documentation, here is some 
that can help you:

Start with the section /"Riak for Operators"/ and once you are 
comfortable, jump to /"Riak for Developers"/
