I created a ramp test scaling from 0 to 1000 concurrent users firing a single get request with no think time at the Web Page and ran it in isolation against the SQL Implementation and then in isolation against the Raven Db Implementation. The test ran for 30 minutes. And for those of you on the edge of you seat the results where a resounding victory for Raven Db. Some details of the load test are below but the headline is SQL choked at 250 concurrent users whereas with Raven Db even with 1000 concurrent users the response time was below 12 seconds.
