#Riak KV Demo Environment

For this demo environment we have two riak nodes.

  1. We will start both nodes.
  2. Join the two nods
  3. Plan the Cluster.
  4. Commit the changes.
  5. Check member-status.

We now have a two node cluster! Note for production we recommend having a minimum of five nodes.

Don’t stop now! The next scenario will only take about 10 minutes to complete.

The nodename should be [email protected]<ipaddress>

Finally, start the nodes: riak start
