Apache CouchDB - an acronym for Cluster Of Unreliable Commodity Hardware - is a database that uses JSON for documents, JavaScript for MapReduce indexes, and regular HTTP for its API. To date, individual servers support multi-master replication, but do not actually act as a server cluster. In this presentation, Joan Touzet will cover the recent merge of the BigCouch fork in advance of the release of CouchDB 2.0. This significant work enhances CouchDB with a native Erlang-based clustering mechanism, supporting high availability, database partitioning and DynamoDB-inspired enhanced read/write semantics. Special attention will be given to new functionality, operational considerations from Cloudant's experience running this code for years in production, upgrade scenarios for existing users and the exciting new Fauxton UI.
