Developers don’t have to worry about managing schemas anymore. DocumentDB automatically indexes all JSON documents added to the database, letting you use familiar SQL syntax to query them without having to specify the schema or secondary indices up front. You can now build modern, scalable applications with a unique combination of robust querying and transactional data processing.
Backed by low-latency, write-optimized solid-state drive (SSD) storage, DocumentDB gives you fast, predictable performance with reserved resources to better deliver on your throughput needs—it scales linearly with cost as your application needs grow. Plus, configure your consistency with well-defined levels including strong, bounded-staleness, session, and eventual. No more being challenged to choose a consistency level that doesn’t fit your application or performance needs.
