CouchDB has several features that help it stand out from the other databases in this rapidly growing field. Incremental map/reduce, peer to peer replication, mobile device synchronization, a realtime update feed, and the ability to host an application in the database itself (also known as a Couchapp) are just a few. See how companies such as the BBC, Radical Dynamic, Signal, and Incandescent Software are using CouchDB to solve their real world challenges.
