  • Scalable Instantly and automatically serverless database for any large scale business.
  • Quick access and response to data queries due to high speed in reading and writing data
  • Create a powerful digital experience for your customers with real-time offers and agile access to DB with super-fast analysis and comparison for best recommendation
  • When searching by default, it is case sensitive, which must be changed by default
  • In many ways, the price should be more flexible according to the requested facilities, because the price is very expensive for startup companies.
  • It is not fully compatible with most common Streaming Analytics tools applications and developers should be worked on it

  • Highly available
  • Seamless service with low latency
  • Can be accessed through API
  • Expensive, so be careful of the use case.
  • We had a thought time migrating from traditional DBs to Cosmos. Azure should provide a seamless platform for the migration of data from on-premises to cloud.

  • Turn-key geo-redundancy with multi-master writes is unprecedented and unparalleled in the industry!
  • Guaranteed low latency makes Cosmos DB an excellent fit for most of our performance-intensive situations.
  • The tunable consistency model simplifies so many challenges in distributed systems engineering that otherwise require advanced knowledge of computer science topics. I continue to be impressed at how Cosmos DB has abstracted away so much complexity.
  • Cosmos DB can be very expensive if you're using it for scenarios that are better completed in regular old Azure Table Storage or Blob Storage, specifically if you put some thought into your partitioning schemes. No product is a good substitute for thoughtful system design.
  • It would be helpful if I had some more insight into how many resources (DTUs) an individual query uses.
  • The auto-indexing is great, but a little mysterious -- not usually an issue but it does require some intentional thought.
