This product is very functional and actively works. This works as I thought and went beyond my expectations. Well organised and powerful. This always gives accurate results and is very easy to use. It is very user-friendly. People can easily understand and use it, forever. It is made by quite good sense, and experience. It is very efficient.

RavenDB is simple in use and has a user-friendly and straightforward administration interface. We can now use indices to classify documents, turn complex data into JSON format, and evaluate language and geographical information in real-time. It is quite simple for a C# /.NET programmer to install the RavenDB system from the script. RavenDB includes the excellent RavenStudio, which provides me rapid access to all of the stuff that I can modify without any third-party software.

RavenDB is easy to use and provides a very friendly and intuitive management tool. We can now map documents with indexes, transform unstructured data into JSON format and analyze text and spatial data in real-time. With an array of functional features like data visualization, SNMP monitoring, automated data backup, it is seamlessly helping us in managing databases' performance and generating custom reports.

As a C# / .NET developer, it is pretty easy to configure the RavenDB server /databases from code. RavenDB comes with the top-notch RavenStudio which gives me quick access to all the things that I can configure - no extra software needs to be installed. Furthermore, the memory and disk footprint is pretty small - I even have RavenDB installed on my Surface Pro 4.

Really good .NET client that is very easy to use. The management studio is excellent and puts anything that Microsoft or Oracle have to shame. Very quick to develop with once the complexity hurdle has been overcome. Initially using it can be a bit painful until you fully grasp the event sourced nature of the indexing.

RavenDB is a great product to use. It's dead simple to store and retrieve documents. This makes building applications simple and fast to get going, but also accommodates large complex applications as well. The Studio is fully featured and makes maintaining your data easy.

There is a bit of a learning curve though, due to the nature of documents. You store an object graph that is your aggregate root. Coming from a normalized SQL database, it will take some time to get your head wrapped around how to properly organize your data. This isn't a RavenDB-specific issue, but an issue with NoSQL in general, since the data is stored differently.

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.
