Whether you’re building a traditional LOB application for use in your enterprise, an Internet of Things (IoT) application that runs in a connected car, a cool new MVC 5 app with Azure Websites, a cross-platform Cordova application to run on smartphones or even an application that runs on a wearable device like Microsoft Band chances are that application, whatever it may be, will produce and consume data. You probably won’t know what that data will look like upfront when you start building your great idea and even if you did it will likely change a number of times before you get it out the door. You just want to start building your app while the idea is fresh in your head and not worry about setting up, configuring and running virtual machines, you just want to click a few buttons and get going, fast, and so you should!
This video shows the steps required to change a DocumentDB collection from using pre-defined performance to user-defined performance in the Azure Portal. Changing the performance level from pre-defined to user-defined enables you to customize the throughput that DocumentDB reserves for your application.
Azure DocumentDB is a fully-managed NoSQL document database service. This video demonstrates how Azure DocumentDB can integrate with your modern applications to provide a highly-scalable, queryable, a
