"What CouchDb is:

  • * A stand-alone document store, accessible via XML REST.
  • * Ad-hoc and schema-free with a flat address space.
  • * Distributed, featuring robust, incremental replication with bi-directional conflict detection and resolution.
  • * Query-able and index-able, featuring a table oriented reporting engine with a simplified formula query language.

The CouchDb data model was partially inspired by the Lotus Notes and Domino backend."
