Why would I use Document Database?

Fitzchak Yitzchaki:

Using a document database like RavenDB will give you the following benefits:

  • Better performance in your application
  • Faster development time
  • Better maintenance experience

Wide claims. To me, document databases’ main strengths are:

  • data modeling flexibility
  • preserving querying capabilities

Everything else is either a consequence of these or an implementation specific improvement which most of the time is the result of another tradeoff.
