Hi Miles,

We use Chef and self contained releases built with rebar. This way you 
don't have to install Erlang on the production machines. Our CI server 
(jenkins) builds the releases with the installed Erlang version. We 
deploy a package with a chef recipe and have it put everything in place 
(config files, etc). We don't do hot-upgrades.

Most of the work is getting the self contained release (the riak rebar 
config on github helps to get an idea). The rest is typical chef 
shenanigan.

Cheers
- Tilman
