Azure Cosmos DB: The globally distributed, multi-model database
Earlier this year, we announced Azure Cosmos DB - the first and only globally distributed, multi-model database system. The service is designed to allow customers to elastically and horizontally scale both throughput and storage across any number of geographical regions, it offers guaranteed <10 ms latencies at the 99th percentile, 99.99% high availability and five well defined consistency models to developers. It’s been powering Microsoft’s internet-scale services for years. In this session, we present an overview of Azure Cosmos DB—from global distribution to scaling out throughput and storage—enabling you to build highly scalable mission critical applications.
