Setting up a Riak NoSQL cluster in 7 minutes

This is my first video on NoSQL technology. It involves setting up a 3-node Riak cluster, complete with software installation, config file edits, starting each node and then connecting the cluster. I was trying to do it in under 5 minutes, but I did it in under 7 minutes instead. That's still very good. It took me several evenings to set up a 3-node Hadoop cluster the first time I did it :)

The video is not the best quality but I think it still works. I'll try this again another time, but with a different recording method.
