Overall Satisfaction with RavenDB

After more than 25 years of using a relational SQL database (MS-SQL), we decided to investigate the usage of a NoSQL database and rethink our Dataware house. For a new project, we had the requirement to be flexible in the scalability of the data and to grant high performance (mostly read-only access) for a large amount of data (> 400 Mio Rows). So we started investigating with RavenDb and are really excited.
  • Really simple setup process and great configuration tool.
  • Great implementation in net core / c#.
  • High performance with rare system requirements.
  • Great support team, with really short response times!
  • The product is not as widely used as others.
  • Pro: Fits perfectly into the current architecture of our microservices.
  • Pro: Fair charges in comparance to other products.
Much better support, more transparent pricing, much more easy setup process, native integration into c# / net core. We also tried to set up a Mongo Atlas cluster by self-study but weren't able to get this running. There is a much better response when searching in google, but a lot more overhead of information which does help get the mongo setup done. So we decided to use raven, also because of the great and fast support team.

Would you buy RavenDB again?

Yes

Because it's really user-friendly, offers high performance with fewer hardware requirements, fits perfectly into a modern application architecture, has a fair pricing model and nice monitoring tools.
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.
RavenDB is very well suited for NoSQL beginners to start easily setting up and using a NoSQL database. Also to set up a high performance and high availability cluster is possible without reading tons of documentation. Very straightforward assistant! The performance is really high.
