Azure Cosmos DB goes planet scale with global databases

Monday, April 4, 2016

We are pleased to introduce global databases for Azure Cosmos DB. You can use global databases to replicate data across multiple Azure regions and achieve low-latency access with well-defined data consistency, along with 99.99 percent availability. Global databases are designed to meet the needs of planet-scale applications, such as IoT systems that serve globally distributed devices or Internet-scale web applications that deliver highly personalized experiences. These multi-region databases offer failover capabilities for continuous operation of cloud applications. Azure Cosmos DB global databases are available in preview.
