Voxer relies on Riak as their primary database for various services. They have more than 50 machines dedicated to Riak to support their huge growth and user base, and this has made for an adventure in scaling.

Voxer engineers Matt Ranney and Ryan Sokol talk about the Voxer architecture and how they use Riak, along with the road they took to get there. They also spend some time talking about how they use Node.js and their open source Node.js client, node_riak.
