Benefit of using Azure Cosmos DB for MongoDB applications

Benefit of using Azure Cosmos DB for MongoDB applications

Azure Cosmos DB is Microsoft’s globally distributed, multi-model database service for mission-critical applications. Azure Cosmos DB provides turn-key global distribution, elastic scaling of throughput and storage worldwide, single-digit millisecond latencies at the 99th percentile, and guaranteed high availability, all backed by industry-leading SLAs. Azure Cosmos DB automatically indexes data without requiring you to deal with schema and index management. It is multi-model and supports document, key-value, graph, and columnar data models.


Azure Cosmos DB databases can be used as the data store for apps written for MongoDB. This functionality means that by using existing drivers, your application written for MongoDB can now communicate with Azure Cosmos DB and use Azure Cosmos DB databases instead of MongoDB databases.


Using this functionality, you can easily build and run MongoDB globally distributed database applications in the Azure cloud with Azure Cosmos DB and it’s comprehensive industry-leading SLAs while continuing to use familiar skills and tools for MongoDB.

You can develop applications using MongoDB and deploy them to production using the fully managed, and globally distributed Azure Cosmos DB service.


Benefits of using Azure Cosmos DB for MongoDB applications


Elastically scalable throughput and storage

Easily scale up and down your MongoDB database as per your application need. For low predictable latencies, data is stored in solid-state disks (SSD). Azure Cosmos DB supports MongoDB collections that can scale to virtually unlimited storage sizes and provisioned throughput. You can elastically scale Azure Cosmos DB with predictable performance seamlessly as your application grows.


Multi-region replication

Azure Cosmos DB transparently replicates your data to all regions you’ve associated with your MongoDB account, enabling you to develop applications that require global access to data while providing tradeoffs between consistency, availability, and performance, all with corresponding guarantees.


No server management

Azure Cosmos DB is a fully managed service, which means you do not have to manage any infrastructure or Virtual Machines yourself.


Automatic indexing

By default, Azure Cosmos DB automatically indexes all the properties within documents in your MongoDB database and does not expect or require any schema or creation of secondary indices


Enterprise grade

Azure Cosmos DB supports multiple local replicas to deliver 99.99% availability and data protection in the face of local and regional failures.

Data center Transformation; first step to Digital Transformation

Digital Transformation has been the buzz word for quite a period of time now. It involves not just the introduction of new technologies, but modification of existing business processes and models to fully leverage those technologies. This empowers the company to gain unparalleled levels of productivity, improves the customer experience, drive innovation and competitive upper hand.

On a theoretical level, it sounds great but when put into practice it’s extremely challenging. It is difficult to transform your organization when you are struggling to maintain and manage legacy IT architecture

Most organizations still allocate upwards of 80% of the IT budget towards “Keeping the lights ON”



For many organizations, the challenges begin with the data center infrastructure. High latency network lacks the capacity and scalability to support rapidly changing technology demands. Power and cooling costs continue to increase, further straining IT budgets. Digital transformation must start with data center transformation to ensure the right foundation is in place.

Azure Vs AWS: The Cloud Battle: Part 2

In the second part of the series Azure Vs AWS: The Cloud Battle, we talk about the ease of use, the advantages you get being a Microsoft product consumer and the verdict.

Read: Azure Vs AWS: The Cloud Battle: Part 1

Gentle Learning Curve

AWS is widely perceived as being complicated. This is evident by the numerous tutorials, user guides, and troubleshooting documents that are out there.

Conversely, Azure allows the utilization of the same tried and trusted technologies that several businesses have used in the past and are still using today. These include Windows and Linux, Active Directory, and virtual machines.

Build and iterate faster

Azure’s integrated tools and services help ISVs build applications faster; by contrast, Amazon Web Services puts the burden of integrating different services on their users.


The ‘Enterprise Agreement’ Advantage

If an organization already uses Microsoft software, then it likely has the ‘Enterprise Agreement’ with Microsoft. It is entitled to obtain discounts on the Microsoft software being used as Microsoft usually tweaks these agreements to lower the pricing of Azure. Thus, with the enterprise agreement, enterprises can typically obtain significant incentives for using Azure.

Ninety percent of Fortune 500 companies use Azure.
