Emily Lawton joins Scott Hanselman to discuss what's new in Azure Cosmos DB's API for Mongo DB, including new preview features such as support for the aggregation pipeline and unique indexes. They discuss tips and tricks for importing large backups using MongoDB Tools. For more information, see: Azure Cosmos DB: API for MongoDB Azure Cosmos DB: Import MongoDB Data
Kirill Gavrylyuk shows Scott Hanselman an easy way to build planet-scale serverless apps in minutes using Azure Cosmos DB and Azure Functions. Customers expect apps to offer event-driven, near real-time experiences. Now you can subscribe to changes in Azure Cosmos DB collections and trigger logic in real time while being globally-distributed, and without deploying or managing any servers.
Azure Cosmos DB is a globally distributed database with limitless elastic scale. To take advantage of elastic scale, you first need to choose a partition key. Kirill Gavrylyuk stops by Azure Friday to talk with Scott Hanselman about the choice of partition key, and how to use the new metrics charts to troubleshoot a poor partition key choice (e.g., "hot partitions").
Kirill Gavrylyuk shows Scott Hanselman a new way to try Azure Cosmos DB free of charge, no sign-up or credit card required. It's a perfect way to get to know Azure Cosmos DB better, without commitment. Try Azure Cosmos DB
Kirill Gavrylyuk talks Cosmos DB and Graphs with Scott, exploring why we need graphs, and what we can we do with graphs on Cosmos DB. Cosmos DB offers native graph gremlin API support in addition MongoDB, SQL, and others. Graphs in Cosmos DB enjoy the same global distribution, low latency, limitless throughput, and 99.99% SLAs as other APIs.
Aravind Krishna shows Scott Hanselman how to get started with the Table API for Azure Cosmos DB, the globally distributed multi-model database. Using the API, applications running on Azure Table storage can take advantage of secondary indexes, turnkey global distribution, dedicated throughput, and single digit millisecond latency with 99.99% comprehensive SLAs.
Kirill Gavrylyuk stops by Azure Friday to talk Cosmos DB with Scott Hanselman. Watch quick overview of the industry's first globally distributed multi-model database service followed by a demo of moving an existing MongoDB app to Cosmos DB with a single config change.
In this episode of Azure Friday, Steve Lindsay – Senior Technical Evangelist for the Azure Developer Experience team, talks with Scott Hanselman and shares the techniques and tools he uses to interface with DocumentDB through REST. Steve makes available his example REST clients written in Postman(js), C#, nodes.js, Native Swift and Java. Using his example code you can learn how to navigate the DocumentDB authentication headers and create a DocumentDB REST client for your favorite language. You'll find links to all his example code and clients here: http://aka.ms/microsoftte-restdocdb
In this episode of Azure Friday, Aravind Ramachandran talks with Scott Hanselman about support for aggregate functions at global scale in Azure DocumentDB. Aravind explains how you can perform low latency aggregation queries against large datasets without schema definitions or secondary indexes, and other improvements in the DocumentDB query engine like reduced request units and support for polygon indexing.
Kirill Gavrylyuk stops by Azure Friday to talk with Scott Hanselman about the DocumentDB SDK for the Xamarin platform. DocumentDB offers everything mobile developer needs from a cloud database: speed, limitless elastic scale, geo distribution, geo spatial support, binary attachments, and more.
