CouchDB's File Format Is Brilliantly Simple and Speed-Efficient at the Cost of Disk Space

Riyad Kalla:

I have been reading up on log structured file systems, efficient data formats, database storage engines and copy-on-write semantics for a little more than week now… reading about the pros and cons of different approaches and seeing it all come together so smoothly in a single design like Couch’s really deserves a hat-tip to the Couch team.

Great post looking at the pros of CouchDB storage format and the tradeoffs the team made on the way.
