Correct. Thanks for sending details Hristo. Of course, README should have
all details ;)

With risk of sounding like an ad, I can confirm that on Bluemix, due to
the shear amount of data we process we use the Couch-compatible Cloudant

However, any such DB should work. If you do try something else do let us

To try Abacus out you can simply run it locally with the in-memory
npm run build
npm start
npm run demo
npm stop

We use a limited set of DB operations to support CouchDB 1 & 2 and
MongoDB 2 & 3.

You can deploy Abacus as BOSH release or as a set of applications.
Therefore we allow the database to be simply an URL in Abacus applications
environment or to be bound as a service.

IBM use CouchDB/Cloudant with the URL approach afaik. In SAP we use
custom BOSH release MongoDB and ServiceFabrik's service broker.

Great! I haven't attempted to use Abacus yet. Is there a
recommended/preferred Mongo or Couch bosh release to use with abacus?
