As announced on the Basho blog today, Riak is now available on Windows Azure as a fully supported and tested NoSQL database option. Riak brings a master-less, distributed database option to Windows Azure, allowing unlimited scale, built-in replication and fast querying options. Please visit these links for more information, extensive documentation and packaging tools.

Over the coming weeks Basho will work with the Microsoft team to add tools that make creation and benchmarking of large clusters simple—Basho is currently in development to automate the creation of Riak clusters for benchmarks.

We are excited to have this new offering on Windows Azure, so stay tuned for updates.
