This is too bold and broad, sorry. Indeed, 2.x is poor fit, because it
demands regular if not daily maintenance and has substantial amount of
issues. With no doubts FDB-based release will have even more problems, not
because of FDB or IoT by itself, but because any re-architectured solution
is full of issues and not yet covered corner cases.

However, 1.x is ok for some IoT scenaria, esp if you use Erlang for
CPU-intensive query server functions. Latest 1.x releases have very good
balance in terms of reliability/speed, and require no additional SW (except
probably nginx) – which is especially valuable.

Having 1.x CouchDB installed on devices, which are physically remote from
service is reasonable choice: Couch 1.x is famous for it’s ability to work
without requiring administrative intervention for years. Couch ability to
receive QS functions updates using regular replication is invaluable for
long-running distributed IoT projects.

As for Pouch – it’s a wonderful solution for browsers, however it can be
easily knocked out when acts as a server.
