Riak cluster on Docker

I'd be much interesting collaborating.

I have five Dell Optiplex 745's that I'm setting up and dedicating to riak.

Among other interests, Jesse Gumm and I are writing a book on building applications with Nitrogen. We plan to include a chapter that shows how to build several db back-ends, including riak.

I found these two resources quite helpful, but I do approach the problem with some apprehension since I'm new to ansible and riak.


Hope to hear from you.

All the best,

I only need to run one Riak instance per physical host, otherwise data
redundancy guarantees are compromised in a production environment.

So initially I was simply publishing the required ports to the real host
interface, and then doing clustering as you would normally between Riak
hosts on a network.

Now I am implementing Rudder (https://coreos.com/blog/introducing-rudder/),
which is a much better solution.

If your interested in collaboration it would be great to have help on
building production-ready Riak Dockerfiles ? Hector's work is awesome but
I've found it is mostly suited to development and/or inspiration rather than
production. I'll look into making our GitHub repos public w/ a OSS license
with our company.
