Cloudant’s BigCouch is now open source.

BigCouch is a set of Erlang/OTP applications. It facilitates the creation of a cluster of CouchDBs that is distributed across many nodes/servers. The result is fully CouchDB API-compliant. BigCouch also comes with the ‘rexi’ RPC server application that drops some “unneeded overhead” in Erlang/OTP’s ‘rex’ RPC server, in an effort to better fit the BigCouch distributed data store.
