"According to its motto, the underlying premise behind the open
source CouchDB NoSQL database is about helping developers "relax"
-- chiefly by providing them with a simple, powerful database
"To better help achieve that goal, Couchio, a commercial entity
led by the founder of the Apache CouchDB project, is now launching
a cloud hosting project to make it easier to ramp up CouchDB
"The new Couchio hosting service is currently in beta, but it
could hold the promise of helping to accelerate usage of CouchDB
among developers, supporters said.
""Basically, we're trying to provide a super-low-friction way to
enable people to get started with CouchDB hosting online," Damien
Katz, creator of CouchDB, told InternetNews.com. "We're not
focusing on large customers or high scalability. Primarily we're
focusing on making it dead simple for people to have a CouchDB
instance in the cloud."
