Apache CouchDB is a document-based, rather than relational, database, which provides a simple JSON/HTTP API. It can be used for web apps, but also has a sweet spot for giant data stores and high-transfer rate applications. In this workshop we'll cover what you need to know, when you are pushing your hardware to the limits in a high-performance environment. We'll cover: interfacing to CouchDB directly via Erlang; techniques for minimizing disk seeks; optimizing Map Reduce views for application data access patterns; providing reliable transactional saves using replication, redundant nodes, and update notifications.
