Standout Features of Riak

I would once again mention the deletes. The idea of big data is that you can store lots and lots of data. Riak excels at this by still providing fast reads regardless of the amount of data. However, Riak doesn't seem to support "clean data". For use cases that require clean data, Riak makes it extremely hard to ensure your data is clean due to the possibility of resurrecting deleted data seemingly without notice. As a result, many work arounds have to be performed and the size of the Riak dataset is ever growing. Obviously while Riak can handle the large amount of data, this will eventually become an issue if you're needing a clean data set rather than just storing and never deleting.

Standout Features of Riak

We have not used Riak Search in production, but it seems like it would be a great way to implement a search backend. Anyone with experience with Apache SOLR should have no problem working with Riak Search to perform complex queries.
