At the Game Developers Conference this March, Basho Chief Architect Andy Gross and Rovio Entertainment Product Manager Timo Herttua co-presented a session on Riak at Rovio. Angry Birds developer Rovio is using Riak as the database supporting its new mobile gaming platform, including features such as payments, game state storage, and push notifications. The Croods game was the first to use this new platform and is now available on Android and iOS.
In this video, Andy and Timo discuss how Rovio uses Riak and the data storage requirements for today's high-scale, high-performance gaming platforms.
