Pro - Stability. Does everything anyone could need. If it's not there it will be on the next update. There is plenty of support for it. It's been around for a long time and it's reliable. The support is well documented and has a great reputation. Cons - Errors have been found in the documentation provided by Oracle with guidelines, etc. Oracles salespeople have a reputation of being obnoxious and condescending.

If you're a.NET developer searching for a system other than SQL Server for business assessment, then you must try RavenDB. RavenDB is a fantastic document-oriented system that has been specifically developed to work with all.NET or Windows systems. Developers are continually working on such systems to eliminate their flaws while also providing a few benefits. We must refresh ourselves on a regular basis since the free software system is like an open area where anybody may stand up with a brilliant solution to the issue. RavenDB is absolutely worth a look
Read full review Pros Robust - this product doesn't have a lot of downtime. It's less prone to errors than some other tools I've worked with. Scalable - we can keep adding more things to it. We haven't hit any roadblocks when we've tried to do more with our database. Manish Garg

Read full review Document Database - no Object-Relational Impedance Mismatch ACID support that is optimized for performance Can be easily integrated into automated tests (unit tests) Easily configurable via C# code Comes directly with RavenStudio - no SSMS or SQL Developer required In general low footprint when it comes to memory and disk consumption Useful safety nets for new developers - e.g. by default an exception is thrown when you make too many requests within a session Read full review Cons There is no access to the physical host of the DB. This is expected from a managed DB. Everything must be done through the console or via API calls. This is a new learning curve for the DBAs. Due to the lack of physical host access, certain features are not supported, such as Transportable tablespaces and Oracle LogMiner. Certain special data types, (such as XMLType) are not allowed; be sure the app vendor certifies their product on this platform. Johnny Wu

Read full review The documentation is very good, but it's sometimes hard to find the topic I'm looking for. Updating references is done manually. It would be nice if there was a feature to help with that. I'm not sure that's even possible though. Read full review Likelihood to Renew

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.

The support is really fast and flexible. Since one single working day, we got a response to our first request, only 4 days later we got a technical demonstration for our complete developer team to get in touch with raven and its performance. Also during our development, we got a quick response to questions.

I found Oracle Autonomous Database very secure to store data and private information.I always feel secure with Oracle Autonomous Databases disaster recovery features.It is very effective to build applications for mobile and desktop devices lesser code using a low code development framework namely Oracle Application Express (ApEx).

The given alternatives are also powerful and really good noSQL databases but the highest availability of RavenDB allows me/us to know it a lot better. RavenDB is encrypted by default wherever we use it in production and it has a high level of documents compression.
Read full review Return on Investment Oracle Autonomous Database has a wide range of warehouses, which is competent and of high performance. The transactional processing power that Oracle Autonomous Database outlines are completely important and digital. The efficiency of Oracle Autonomous Database data encryption fosters security measures, a form that demands more threat detectors. Read full review RavenDB has saved my customers a lot of money with their cloud services' tiered model. The database is able to grow with the project/company and can start out small at a low cost. RavenDB is free for three nodes and three CPUs, which makes it great for development scenarios. You're able to start rapidly building applications without having to worry about licensing. Scaling out has allowed us to use three small cloud servers when starting out and get the performance and throughput of a single larger server.
