Optimizing Request Unit Consumption
Play Optimizing Request Unit Consumption
Cosmos DB is a "Database as a Service" product, where we don't have control of hardware configuration but instead use "request units" to specify the resources of our database.
Nonetheless, this doesn't mean that there is nothing to do on the performance side, and there are specific ways to get more out of our request units and deliver our data even faster. From consistency, indexing, connectivity settings, global replication, we will cover everything that can have an impact on your throughput and latency.
In this demo-heavy session we will go into the request units concept and look at how all these different settings impact consumption and cause an increase or decrease of query and data modification throughput.
