  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm newbie in Cosmos DB and I got a lot of questions

    1.
    It is only SQL server that can use Cosmos DB?

    2.
    If a company use Cosmos DB with SQLserver and they get about 2000 transaction everyday. Suddenttly a new customer with 500 000 transaction everyday is needed, does Cosmos DB is fit for this situation?

    3.
    Howa about other database for instance Mongo DB that can use Cosmos DB?

    4.
    Any other criteria to use Cosmos DB?

    Thank you!

  • Hi Sakura,

    Azure Cosmos DB is a NoSQL platform that supports multiple database technologies through multiple endpoints (SQL API, MongoDB API, Graph API, Cassandra API, Table API). 

    You can leverage a specific database driver technology while also leveraging the other features and functionality that are common across all APIs. 

    Cosmos DB is a great platform for high volume small data objects such as telemetry data and objects that are 1k in size. 

    The following is the into documentation for MongoDB: Azure Cosmos DB's API for MongoDB

    Can you please provide additional details with regards to solution reqs, etc. 

    Thanks,

    Mike
