CouchDB -- A Real World use at MIT

| Abstract: This talk will discuss the MIT Websurvey service and how it takes advantage of the CouchDB database system. CouchDB is one of the new generation of "noSQL" databases. While there are several good noSQL database solutions out there, CouchDB is interesting because of its novel multi-master write replication strategy. This permits us to operate multiple servers, each with a writable copy of the database, and keep it all sane!
