CouchDB, Database re-invented?

I stumbled over a document-oriented, replicating Database named CouchDB. It’s still in “alpha” but everything sounds very promising:

  • Written in Erlang
  • Flat-file and document-centered
  • Replication built in
  • Runs on
    1. Linux
    2. OS X
    3. Windows
  • Open Source

What’s not to like? And since the local database is replicated with the peers, no backups. But don’t forget to put two or three machines in another building. 😉
