Presented by: Scott Hanselman |

DocumentDB collections are logical resources that can span multiple partitions to provide practically limitless scale. In this episode of Azure Friday, Shireesh Thota talks with Scott Hanselman about scaling DocumentDB with a partitioning collection and how best to choose your partition keys to optimize for read and write workloads. Partition management is fully managed by Azure DocumentDB and it is completely transparent to your application, so you do not have to write complex code or manage your partitions.
