Apache CouchDB is a document-oriented database that can be queried and indexed 
in a MapReduce fashion using JavaScript. CouchDB also offers incremental 
replication with bi-directional conflict detection and resolution.

CouchDB provides a RESTful JSON API than can be accessed from any environment 
that allows HTTP requests. There are myriad third-party client libraries that 
make this even easier from your programming language of choice. CouchDB’s built 
in Web administration console speaks directly to the database using HTTP 
requests issued from your browser.

CouchDB is written inErlang, a robust functional programming language ideal for 
building concurrent distributed systems. Erlang allows for a flexible design 
that is easily scalable and readily extensible.

Your Eternal Servant
