We're rolling out with MySQL right now and would want to switch over to Riak, so we can tap into Test Pilot's information and use the demographic information (from the user agent) as hooks to get more refined data. Questions to Answer: - How is TP implementing this? What documentation do they have? - Would we have any dataloss on the move over? - Perf issues?
An important question will be how to search. If there's a Python library for us to use, might still need to write the necessary interfaces. That'll make the community happy, but will slow down our migration.
By the time we need to move away from MySQL we'll want to re-evaluate our options. Marking as WONTFIX. File a new bug when we've actually decided on what to move to, and when.
