Overall Satisfaction with RavenDB

Our company was searching for an efficient caching solution that can also serve as a storage hub for company data and decided a few years ago to experiment with RavenDB. Employees are free to store data at will and use the available technologies for web development purposes. It has been primarily used for cache stacking and session-sharing and thus far has been receiving good reviews among workers.
  • 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
  • RavenDB's speed helps minimizes delay and cuts costs
  • In the discussion of using RavenDB to replace a traditional data storage (MySQL) the company had been using
  • Requires very little initial investment to host
The company needed a cache server that was closest and the most accessible, which is why we are currently experimenting with RavenDB which gives us the option to set up our hub in a local setting.

RavenDB is really easy to learn and utilize. You can perform the majority of the tasks just from learning a few commands. Many employees were delighted by the implementation of RavenDB.
The users of our company have received excellent technical support directly from RavenDB through their Google Groups page. Their Google Groups page has reliable responses--many times written by RavenDB's developers, to meaningful questions and serves as our encyclopedia whenever we require a documented solution. That being said, the Google Groups page was not introduced to us at the point of sale and we still are disappointed that we had to discover the website on our own.
RavenDB would be an excellent option for any projects requiring cache. It has the capacity to take on a big volume of input at once without any performance issues. If the solutions you are searching for are related to cache or key operations, RavenDB would provide good results.
