-    <p>CouchDB is a document database that completely embraces the web. Data is stored
as JSON documents. These documents can then be accessed via HTTP, with a web browser. And
queries can be done in JavaScript. Because of this, CouchDB works well with modern web applications
and mobile apps. You can distribute data to any number of machines efficiently using CouchDB’s
incremental replication. And CouchDB even supports master-master setups with automatic conflict
detection.</p>

-    <p>To top it all off, CouchDB comes with a suite of features, including on-the-fly
transformation of documents and query results, and real-time change notifications that makes
web application development a breeze. It even comes with an easy to use administration console.
But what about <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CAP_theorem">CAP</a>? Well,
CouchDB is highly available and partition tolerant, but is also <a href="http://guide.couchdb.org/editions/1/en/consistency.html">eventually
consistent</a>. This makes it very easy to distribute and scale CouchDB. And, it has
a fault-tolerant storage engine that puts the safety of your data first.</p>
