The Lounge is a proxy-based partitioning/clustering framework for CouchDB, originally written by Kevin Ferguson, Vijay Ragunathan and Shaun Lindsay at

There are two main pieces:

  • dumbproxy: An NGINX module to handle simple gets/puts for everything that isn’t a view.
  • smartproxy: A python/twisted daemon that handles mapping/reducing view requests to all shards in the cluster.

As well as an assortment of smaller scripts and whatnot.

To get started using this, grab a copy of the source tree and follow the steps in BuildInstructions.
