Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Couchdb Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by NoahSlater:

The comment on the change is:
Copied from the original CouchDB wiki

New page:
Getting started with CouchDB and the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud.

== Quickstart ==

  * Run AMI ''ami-b832d7d1'', get Public DNS.
  * Authorize TCP port 5984.
  * In browser open

== Detailed Description ==

This AMI release has base Debian 3.1 (Etch) with Elastic Drive installation, so you might
consider some kind of persistence to Amazon S3 or other supported platforms, like Nirvanix
etc., thus preserving the data that is stored in CouchDB.

CouchDB has been built from source (version 0.7.2, revision 645), and configured to run as
a service.

== AMI Support ==

All the necessary information has been submitted for inclusion into repository of Amazon Public
AMIs, and is listed as [
ElasticDB - (Elasticdrive + CouchDB)]. We created support thread at Amazon forums, specifically
[ Amazon
SimpleDB (Beta)] and provide limited support there, when time allows and scope is limited
to EC2/SimpleDB-related issues.

If you have couchDB internals related question, it is better addressed by respective community.

== Future Work ==

[ Khaz Sapenov] is planning to test SMP features of CouchDB
on extra-large instances and to see how it all works out for Erlang.
