18:00 – 19:00 - Jes Borland | Choose the Right Cosmos DB API and Consistency Model
Cosmos DB is Azure's globally distributed, multi-model database service. It offers several APIs, multiple consistency models, automatic indexing, and guaranteed performance. This revolutionary NoSQL database system is changing how developers store and work with their data. But which API and model is right for your application? In this session, you'll learn what types of data each API can store, what benefits each consistency model provides, and use cases for each.
