Enjoy High Availability with a Distributed Database Architecture
RavenDB is a NoSQL Document Database, that allows you to enjoy high availability in a distributed database architecture without increasing complexity.
Putting together a dataset in a relational database often requires the gathering and joining of information from numerous tables. Add to the mix data retrieval from different nodes of a distributed system, and you wind up piling complexity upon complexity.
With a document database you can store and retrieve all your data using a single repository, making for smooth sailing in a distributed environment. Easy approach to additional service points is translated into a user experience of reduced latency, faster performance, assignment failover, and a “Come in, we’re open!” sign for your prospects and customers to see at all times.
A Distributed Database that Makes it Look Easy
Easy Deployment: RavenDB makes distributed computing look easy.
You can get set up and secured in a matter of minutes. Watch RavenDB CEO Oren Eini spin up a 3-node cluster in less time than it takes to run a mile:
RavenDB defaults to a distributed database architecture, operating even a single server as a database cluster of one node. This tactic saves you time and resources, as you can easily deploy a distributed system by scaling out to 3, 5 or more nodes. You don’t have to change anything while your cluster expands.
You can create and secure your data cluster quickly and deploy it in the cloud, on-premise, or in a “hybrid” combination of both.
Scale Up with the Click of a Button
RavenDB has a great Management Studio GUI. In a click, you can expand the number of nodes in your cluster. This is ideal for peak traffic times when you need more points of service available to handle more users.
You can also scale back, by eliminating nodes. This comes in very useful on the cloud, when you want to reduce underutilized resources for both usage and costs.
