That’s getting way off-topic for this list, but has a bunch of marketing
materials and white papers and such, and we have sales engineers you can talk to if you really
want to dive into it. But as I said, Couchbase Server and BigCouch are very different.

AFAIK BigCouch’s document/revision/conflict model is identical to CouchDBs. MVCC, revision
IDs, revision trees, conflicts represented as branched trees, conflict resolution by deleting
unwanted branches, etc.
