  • Helps to save time due to their fast access of database.
  • RavenDB offers an infinite Database capacity with a free license, therefore we can continue on that for a longer period of time.
  • Very quick development with cost optimization.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Deployment using their very reasonably priced Raven.Cloud means a very low operational cost.
  • Since the database is now simply a "background" task, I can concentrate on my business logic rather than concerning myself with how the data is being stored/retrieved.
