Azure Cosmos DB: How to optimise and save money!

Microsoft Reactor London

What is this session about? "Cosmos DB was expensive and slow so we ditched it" This is by far the most common phrase said by people that didn't end up using Azure Cosmos DB as their database. However, is it justified? In this session, we will showcase a series of statements, similar to the title of this session, collected throughout the years from people that tried to work with Azure Cosmos DB and didn't have the experience they hoped for. We will explain what caused this frustration in the first place and how it was resolved in each and every scenario with real world examples. ___________________________________________________ PLEASE NOTE: RSVPing TO THIS PAGE WILL NOT REGISTER YOU FOR THIS EVENT. >>> REGISTER HERE: https://www.microsoftevents.com/profile/form/index.cfm?PKformID=0x7999438abcd <<< ___________________________________________________ Who should Attend?

The attendees will get a clear understanding of what type of tool Cosmos DB is in their tool-set and which problems it can solve the best.
