In this episode of the Azure Government video series, Steve Michelotti talks with Rafat Sarosh, Program Manager on the Cosmos DB team, about Cosmos DB on Azure Government.
Rafat and Steve begin with a discussion of the benefits of Cosmos DB including geo-redundancy, scaling throughput and storage, and low latency SLA-backed performance. Rafat then talks about the multi-model nature of Cosmos DB which enables NoSQL document store, key-value, column-family, and even graph capabilities. Rafat and Steve also talk about Cosmos DB Always On capabilities and how geo-redundancy works through the Azure Government data centers. Rafat then shows a demo of Cosmos DB in Azure Government – both with the Azure Government portal, as well as C# code interacting with Cosmos DB in Azure Government. If you’re someone looking to understand the basics of Cosmos DB, and how to get up and running quickly in Azure Government, this video is for you!
