CouchBase vs CouchDB vs MongoDB

CouchBase vs CouchDB vs MongoDB | Big Data | Scoop.it

In my last article I spoke about MongoDB, one of the most popular NoSQL databases so I’ll make a presentation of CouchDB, another great NoSQL database that has some amazing features and how it compares to MongoDB and CouchBase.
 
CouchDB is written in Erlang, a computer language highly optimized for concurrency, distribution and fault tolerance. Beside being fast from the name and logo we can have a hint that the database was targeted for easy use. Their focus was to increase developers's productivity by having easy to use tools.
