We were featured in Computerworld's list of 15 high-impact Apache projects:

This database uses JSON for documents, JavaScript for MapReduce queries,
> and HTTP for an API. CouchDB’s core feature is its replication mechanism,
> says Jan Lehnhardt, a longtime contributor to the project.

“It allows [us] to synchronize any instance of CouchDB with any other. Each
> copy of the data can be worked on independently, and changes can be
> synchronized back to all other members of the group. Naturally occurring
> conflicts can be dealt with programmatically.”

CouchDB replication can be used to distribute data globally or move it
> geographically closer to users. Improvements planned include integration
> with BigCouch, a fault-tolerant, clustered version of CouchDB, Lehnhardt
> says. The database’s JavaScript engine will be changed to V8 and Node.JS
> for more flexibility of in-server scripting.
