Taking a Database to World-Scale โ€“ Microsoft Presents Azure Cosmo DB

WEBINAR: On-demand webcast

How to Boost Database Development Productivity on Linux, Docker, and Kubernetes with Microsoft SQL Server 2017 REGISTER >

Microsoft announced the Cosmos Database today at Microsoft Build. This is a new database built from the ground up to take support what is deemed as “planet scale” applications. The focus was to build a database that could provide fast responses to users no matter where they are located on the planet. With the increase in IoT and AI solutions, the intensity to which data is being used is getting greater. Along with that, the expectations of a database are also increasing.

Microsoft stated that Cosmos DB is a “globally distributed, multimodal database service to deliver horizontal scale with guaranteed up-time, throughput, consistency and millisecond latency at the 99th percentile.”

The service provides schema-agnostic database services with support for NoSQL. With Cosmos Db, you will be able to get an image of your database across the entire world. The service will also provide the support to provide consistency when scaling your data across, even if it is across 34 regions on the planet.

Cosmos DB provides five well defined consistency models: Strong, Bounded Stateless, Session, Consistent Prefix, and Eventual. This lets you determine how you want to balance between high availability, performance, and the consistency of your data.

Azure Cosmos DB has been released for General Availability today.
