Maybe what you are looking for is a combination of both, say, your KV 
data in Riak with a combination of background processes able to build 
the necessary searching graphs in Neo4J, in such way your data is secure 
in a Riak cluster and searchable on several Neo4J servers.

That's just an idea which might be not do-able, hope it helps,
