Scale data across the globe with Azure Cosmos DB multiple-region replication
Updated: 20 June, 2016
The global distribution capability of Azure Cosmos DB is generally available in all Azure Cosmos DB regions.
You can use Azure Cosmos DB to associate any number of Azure regions to your database account. Azure Cosmos DB transparently distributes your data across all the regions associated with your database account and offers provisioned throughput, well-defined consistency choices, and low-latency and availability guarantees. It also offers transparent failover with multi-homing APIs. With the support for multiple-region replication in Azure Cosmos DB, you can develop applications that require global access to data, and you can set up seamless failover for regions in the event of actual or simulated failures.
You can configure Azure Cosmos DB to elastically scale throughput and storage across the globe in in less than a minute through the Azure portal.
