What do you like best?

Database as an immutable data structure, powerful query abilities, time travel are all amazing features.

What do you dislike?

It's not open source, so it's not feasible tech to use for a product's core infrastructure, seeing what happened to other proprietary databases when they get bought out. Licensing model also makes deployment rather inconvenient and full of questionable implications for distribution (i.e. are we allowed to put it up in a docker container on docker hub? does that count as distributing it without permission?).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We've mostly been using it for a few early prototypes using Clojure & ClojureScript, and the immutable database semantics fits perfectly with the language. Unfortunately we decided to go with Postgres in the end due to licensing concerns.

Thanks for letting us know!

There are not enough reviews of Datomic for G2 Crowd to provide buying insight. Below are some alternatives with more reviews:

Hive Logo

At the same time this language also allows traditional map/reduce programmers to plug in their custom mappers and reducers when it is inconvenient or inefficient to express this logic in HiveQL.
Cassandra Logo
Cassandra's data model offers the convenience of column indexes with the performance of log-structured updates, strong support for denormalization and materialized views, and powerful built-in caching.
Knack Logo
Knack enables anyone to build simple web apps and online databases. You can import data from spreadsheets or define it from scratch, and then build interfaces to display and manage that data using elements like forms, tables, and search. Apps can be easily embedded into any website and then further styled or manipulated via jQuery.
