Riak
Best usedIf you want something Cassandra-like (Dynamo-like), but no way you're gonna deal with the bloat and complexity. If you need very good single-site scalability, availability and fault-tolerance, but you're ready to pay for multi-site replication.
Usage examplePoint-of-sales data collection. Factory control systems. Places where even seconds of downtime hurt.
Known Shortcomings
Main focusFault tolerance
