Thanks, Johs. That's helpful. I'm not sure if we can fit it into the
voice-over; however, I'll definitely be working on some marketing pieces
that focus on Cloudant-Apache CouchDB replication in the coming months as
CouchDB 2.0 is readied. And this is an important distinction to make, since
we'll likely have many customers with this same question.

In the meantime, I'll see what we can do with the V.O. Cheers, --Mike

Subject:	Re: Cloudant video approval?

Great video and storytelling Mike!

The only thing I am missing is a no-lock-in-assurance to the individual
developer: the compatibility with CouchDB on the developer’s own device.
I think replication compatibility is so important that it should not be
treated as a covered by “API compliant".

The reference to CouchDB in
01:35  "While Cloudant is compliant with the API compliant with CouchDB,
our software…”
Says nothing about ability to sync data to a local installation of CouchDB
2.x at the push of a button

The reference to “yourself” in
01:59 “Run Cloudant yourself in your own data center…”
is good for no-lock-in-assurance to the corporations and scaled-up startup,
but you leave out the in-between, always being able to sync Cloudant to a
local installation of CouchDB.

Just to point out how this can be a source of confusion (Cloudant support
Case 41635), when I asked about verification that data syncing would be
unchanged after upgrade to CouchDB 2.0, your support responded with an
answer on the API (as covered in the video), we had to clear it up and this
was the response i was looking for and got:

Apologies for misunderstanding your question - replication between Cloudant
and CouchDB 2.0 is definitely compatible and can be triggered through the
dashboard or through the use of the API code. If I am still not addressing
your question, please let me know and if possible, provide any details as
to what you are trying to do with Cloudant and CouchDB 2.0 replication.

Could probably fit in as a rephrase of the sentence at 01:59.
