  • fast connection and data serving
  • making data readable and understable
  • I think the docs could be improved, and guides added for some main use case (like integration for SPA, serverless, etc.)
  • I believe the studio interface could be simplified

  • Excellent & optimized performance.
  • RavenDB provides storage as default JSON format.
  • One of the greatest .NET client APIs with scalability, resulting in a shorter experience curve.
  • Very easy to use interface.
  • Developing methods is challenging if developers are unfamiliar with the accurate simulation approach.
  • It does not allow you to replicating, or authorized access without first acquiring a license.
  • The lack of evidence of tracking records in the enterprise systems raises several concerns about RavenDB.

  • Easy to learn and fully utilize. The tools made available are very simple and system maintenance is largely hands-free
  • Quick memory caching
  • Free of major errors. Any data is immediately stored to the hub
  • Can dual as a channel for stream data
  • Would like to see RavenDB develop a self-monitoring tool for bottlenecks
  • Needs a bigger community around the software. Difficult to find an immediate solution when faced with a new problem
  • Creating and configuring uncommon settings can sometimes be difficult

  • 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
  • Configuring the JSON Serializer was a little bit hard in one project
  • Creating custom indexes from several documents can sometimes be a bit cumbersome

  • 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.

  • Execute queries very fast, having a powerful structure of indexes.
  • High level of data compression makes possible a very low space occupation.
  • So far, I don't know any area where RavenDB has room for improvement.
