Riak CS (cloud storage) is the in-the-cloud data storage component of Riak, an open source database by Basho Technologies, Inc. Riak CS is constructed to tolerate flaws in data and runs smoothly with smaller, interconnected data loads, as well as large, monolithic data loads. Riak CS achieves this by breaking large data sets into smaller parts, and then replicating and tagging data for query. Information remains retrievable even in the case of data failure.
