Apache CouchDB is an open source, NoSQL database system that is designed for storing and retrieving data in the form of documents. It uses a document-oriented data model, which makes it an ideal choice for applications that need to store large amounts of data and support replication and synchronization.

CouchDB is designed to be highly available, reliable, and fault-tolerant. It stores data in a JSON document format, which is how it allows for replication and synchronization. It also offers a powerful query language that allows for ad hoc queries and indexes.

In addition, CouchDB includes features such as versioning, conflict resolution, and data validation. It also supports ACID-compliant transactions and version control, which allows for easy recovery of data in the event of a crash.
