Azure Cosmos DB

It is well suited for scenarios where you need high performance NoSQL database. It is a reliable and stable database solution. If the application data set is of very large size, then the cost will increase in multiple folds

RavenDB

Migration processes from relational databases (MS SQL Server, ORACLE, MySQL, etc.) into noSQL database environments where ACID features are required, for instance, on transaction operations. In processes where searching information requires fast recovering of data through fast execution of queries.

  • The C# client makes using RavenDB feel like a natural part of the C# language.
  • Support is top notch! Even using free support you get speedy replies from engineers responsible for development of the DB engine.
  • The hosted cloud product is reasonably priced and makes it easy to deploy a resilient cluster with automatic backups.

Cons

Azure Cosmos DB

  • Expensive, so be careful of the use case.
  • We had a thought time migrating from traditional DBs to Cosmos. Azure should provide a seamless platform for the migration of data from on-premises to cloud.

  • In previous versions the documentation was terrible - however, since v4.0 the documentation is excellent.
  • Any minor complaints are generally resolved by the team the same day. I suggested at one time some minor tweaks to Studio (showing the number of items in an array) and they were implemented almost immediately.
  • Nothing really to complain about.

It's efficient, easy to scale, and works. We do have to do a bit of administration, but less now than when we started with this a couple of years ago. Microsoft continues to improve its self-management capability.

We've had an excellent experience using RavenDB. Internally we are testing the newer features in 5.0 such as time series, which will effect the con specified previously dependent on the real world performance. We foresee that BattleCrate will continue to use RavenDB as we grow.

It has very good compatibility and adaptability with other APIs and developers can safely create new apps because it is compatible with various tools and can be easily managed and run under the cloud, and in terms of security, it is one of the best of its kind, which is very powerful and excellent.

It's easy to setup and install a license. Has many administration features that are useful beyond writing code with RavenDB. Very active Google group community. Constantly getting updated with new features. Interesting webinars every couple of weeks on new ways of using RavenDB.

Had a question that was answered in minutes. Never used a NoSQL approach before, but was able to be proficient in a matter of hours. Easy to read API Documentation. 5 out 5 support in book, I have never once ran into an issue that wasn't quickly solved by either their support team or myself doing a quick search online.

Alternatives Considered

Azure Cosmos DB

Cosmos DB is unique in the industry as a true multi-model, cloud-native database engine that comes with solutions for geo-redundancy, multi-master writes, (globally!) low latency, and cost-effective hosting built in. I've yet to see anything else that even comes close to the power that Cosmos DB packs into its solution. The simplicity and tooling support are nice bonus features as well.

RavenDB

I selected RavenDB for my work because It is very easy to set up and It is secure than other platforms. within a few minutes, I can complete my RavenDB setup. RavenDB is the pioneer NoSQL database system when ArangoDB is working on one engine, one query language, and multiple data models. It works very fine and very effective in smaller as well as older machines.

Return on Investment

Azure Cosmos DB

  • Expensive but works if your infra is on Azure data center.
  • No latency and nearly no downtime.
  • Takes time for end users to adapt.

RavenDB

  • Huge boost to productivity, we attempted to build our product two years ago taking around 9 months versus the 5 months for our current iteration. I can attribute this in significant part to RavenDB.
  • Less time managing databases using the Cloud option, and a reduction in cost over AWS Aurora of around 30% for a similar server setup.
  • Flexibility allowed us to rapidly build, test and greenlight two additional stretch goals we originally did not budget time for.
