Autopilot mode for provisioned throughput is now in preview
Published date: 04 November, 2019
With Autopilot mode, users select a throughput tier and Azure Cosmos DB will automatically scale RU/s up and down as needed to match capacity with demand. Opt in for tier upgrades that will automatically shift your account to the next-highest tier if demand spikes beyond the upper limit of your current tier. This means that users won’t have to manage or adjust provisioned throughput up or down to match traffic patterns. This saves time, eliminates the need for custom scripting and removes the risk of over-provisioning or under-provisioning throughput. Rest assured that, when opted in to tier upgrades, your apps will never be rate-limited due to excessive demand or insufficient throughput.
