What is RavenDB’s competitive advantage?

Put simply, is is not this:

The main idea is that RavenDB is a NoSQL database that aims unabashedly to be something that you can just pick up and use, and the database will take care of things like that for you, because for the most part, you can trust the defaults.

That range from having a good story for the Client API, having a Linq Provider, making sensible defaults and working very hard on making sure that everything fits (things like ad hoc queries, for example).



Definitely a good thing.

I hate even having to tell databases to partition data by a date range (and then setup scripts to drop old partitions).
