Azure Cosmos DB is Microsoft’s globally distributed, multi-model database service for mission-critical applications. Azure Cosmos DB provides turn-key global distribution, elastic scaling of throughput and storage worldwide, single-digit millisecond latencies at the 99th percentile, five well-defined consistency levels, and guaranteed high availability, all backed by industry-leading SLAs. Azure Cosmos DB automatically indexes data without requiring you to deal with schema and index management. It is multi-model and supports document, key-value, graph, and columnar data models. As a cloud-born service, Azure Cosmos DB is carefully engineered with multi-tenancy and global distribution from the ground up.
Learn how to use Azure Cosmos DB to create a globally distributed database using one of the multi-model APIs:
From here you see how simple you can Activate Azure Cosmos DB :
Select Azure Cosmos DB and Create
From here you can select your Platform and Add Collection.
And do Epic Things in Visual Studio 😉
What really Awesome is to replicate with Microsoft Azure Cosmos DB :
Here I have the Write Region in North Europe
Here I have added a Read Region Japan West by Click on the +
Write Region is North Europe
Read Region is Japan West
From here you can do a Manual Failover
Here you see the Failover between Europe and Japan
My Write Region is now Japan West instead of Europe
And you can add more Regions like this.
And of course everything is in the metrics monitoring.
It’s a Great Microsoft Azure Cloud solution for Enterprises doing business all over the world and for Developers to make Epic Things !
