Welcome CouchDB to the Bitnami Launchpad for Google Cloud Platform!

We're happy to introduce CouchDB as part of the Bitnami Library for the Google Cloud Platform!

CouchDB is a modern and efficient database that completely embraces the web. It allows you to store your data with JSON documents and access them via HTTP.

It works well with modern web and mobile apps. You can even serve your web apps directly out of CouchDB!

Some popular features of CouchDB include:

  • Store your data in documents in JSON and access them via HTTP
  • Using JavaScript to query, index, combine and transform documents
  • Distributing your data using incremental replication
  • Primary-Primary setups with automatic conflict detection
  • Native support for a RESTful API
You can check out all of these features by deploying CouchDB with one-click on the Bitnami Launchpad for the Google Cloud Platform. Click the button below to get started.
