ASP.NET Persistent session state with Riak

Hello World,Many of us have faced this pertinent question of choosing a persistent storage for ASP.NET session state, especially if you’ve worked with high usage e-commerce websites. During my research for an elegant yet simple to implement solution that does not overburden the production SQL server, I landed on this post by Jeremiah Peschka.As Jeremiah highlights, the solution proposed meets the requirements on durable and fault tolerant session state with a ton of enterprise class features.

The core tool used is an open source key value database (never knew there was something like that :-)) called Riak.

I will try to dig deep and do a follow up post on how the experience is with a basic implementation using Riak as the session store.

Happy Coding!
