Ibm Cloudant

IBM Cloudant is a distributed NoSQL database technology built on the open source Apache CouchDB project. Cloudant is designed for web and mobile applications that handle large amounts of concurrent reads and writes from users around the world. The database service is fully managed by IBM in the cloud, enabling scalability without compromising performance or reliability. With an API compatible with CouchDB, Cloudant can replicate data across multiple data centers to ensure high availability and disaster recovery without additional configuration or infrastructure investment from developers. Its architecture supports incremental map-reduce queries for complex analytics while providing strong consistency guarantees for transactional workloads through its clustered database design.
