Sharding, replication and multi-tenancy are supported out-of-the-box. Scaling out is as easy as it gets.



ACID transactions are fully supported, even between different nodes. If you put data in, it is going to stay there. We care about your data and we keep it safe.

Fast and high performant

Feature rich and extensible

Built with extensibility in mind, RavenDB can be easily extended via bundles. Many integration points ensure you can always squeeze more out of RavenDB. You aren't shackled to a One Size Fits None solution.
