			<p>Riak combines a decentralized key-value store, a flexible map/reduce engine, and a friendly HTTP/JSON query interface to provide a database ideally suited for Web applications.</p>
		<div id="left">
			<h3>A document-oriented Web database</h3>
			<p>Schema-free document databases are in many ways a more natural fit for Web applications than the traditional RDBMS.  With interfaces that are natural and convenient for rapid development, and a lack of object-relational mappers and other heavy middleware, applications can be both simpler and more powerful.</p>
			<br />
			<h3>A database at Web scale</h3>
			<p>Developed with solid distributed systems fundamentals from the start, Riak scales out to meet your needs.  It also scales down easily, making development and prototyping easy.</p>

			<br />
			<h3>A database that eases Web operations</h3>
			<p>A truly fault-tolerant system, no aspect of Riak involves single points of failure.  Since no machines are special or central, the user of Riak can decide exactly how fault-tolerant they would like their application to be.</p>
