A technical overview of Azure Cosmos DB


Azure Cosmos DB is Microsoft’s globally distributed, horizontally partitioned, multi-model database service



Global distribution, elastic horizontal scalability, and multi-model and schema-agnostic database engine are all central to Azure Cosmos DB’s design. As a cloud-born multi-tenant database system, Azure Cosmos DB’s design interleaves resource governance across its entire stack. The system is designed from the ground up to offer global distribution of data, multiple well-defined consistency levels, ability to elastically scale throughput across geographical regions, and comprehensive SLAs encompassing throughput, consistency, latency, and availability to all its customers.
