General Availability: Azure Cosmos DB

16 April 2015

Azure Cosmos DB became generally available on April 8, 2015. Azure Cosmos DB is a fully managed, highly scalable NoSQL document database service. It offers rich query and transactional processing over a schema-free JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) data model for more rapid development and higher performance applications. Offered in units that scale to meet your application’s performance and storage needs, Azure Cosmos DB allows you to more quickly build, grow, and scale cloud applications. Azure Cosmos DB is available in three standard performance levels: S1, S2, and S3. Collections of data within a Azure Cosmos DB database can be assigned to different performance levels, so you can purchase only the performance you need. For more information, please visit the Performance levels in Azure Cosmos DB page. Several enhancements have been made in preparation for general availability, including Apache Hadoop integration, hourly billing, support for larger documents, SQL parameterization, a Java SDK, additional regions, and larger account sizes. For more information, please visit the Azure Cosmos DB page, and for more pricing information, please visit the Azure Cosmos DB Pricing page.
