If issues are occurring with Mongo DB, then using Azure Cosmos DB could be better in certain instances. However, I would not replace it completely over Cassandra or Redis. Through size in k-v distribution could become an issue, especially with Redis. Azure Cosmos DB could help in that apsect.

NoSQL platforms are very useful when it comes to security, speed, accuracy, high accessibility with high read and write power. Everything is managed under the cloud and we have the various capabilities of Azure and support for Microsoft products with us. Flexibility in price and variety of features, as well as real-time results, are some of the popular [features] of this platform.

Cosmos DB is fast, reliable, and highly available. We use it mostly in analytics and applications that leverage big data hosted on the Azure Datacenter. If you have a virtual private cloud in one of Azure sites, then you would definitely need Cosmos. It works well with on-premises applications and offers little to no latency.

It's a perfect choice for cloud environments with a heavy user base where performance and availability is in high demand. I would not say it's less appropriate because it completely depends on environment to environment and what you are trying to achieve. Overall Azure Cosmos DB also offers high data availability and data security. It's also easy to use.

Cosmos DB is hands-down the most flexible and performant way to store and access data related to the functionality of your applications. If you don't really need a 3rd-normal-form relational schema, and if you're not working on a (hot or cold) big data analytics scenario, then you should almost definitely be using Cosmos DB! The only major exception is if your use case can be addressed with some thoughtful planning and use of plain old Azure Storage, which might not get a lot of attention but is still a rock-solid platform.
