General availability: Azure Cosmos DB in Australia
Azure Cosmos DB is now generally available in the Australia East and Australia Southeast regions. Azure Cosmos DB is a fully managed, NoSQL, JSON database that supports queries and transactions across your data by indexing everything automatically. Customers use Azure Cosmos DB to support a wide range of application scenarios, including device registry, configuration stores in Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, the catalog, and user-generated data for web apps. Apps running in Australia can now offer experiences with lower latency. For a limited time, we’ll charge for S1, S2, and S3 Azure Cosmos DB hours at US West rates for all regions. Regional rates will be effective starting January 1, 2016. For more information, please visit the Azure Cosmos DB page.
