Apache CouchdDB is a schema-free document database with unique characteristics that make it an excellent fit for a new wave of applications. It is a rapidly maturing product and one of the leaders of the NoSQL movement. We will take a look at some of these unique features, and also delve into Erlang, the programming language in which CouchDB is developed. Cloudant has developed a compelling clustering framework that allows for linear scaling of databases across large amounts of nodes in a cluster. We will discuss the fundamental features outlined in Amazon's Dynamo paper from 2007, and how Cloudant has leveraged these in its clustering layer.
