Fresh off the Connect() 2018 conference, here’s a video summarizing what’s new in CosmosDB for developers.

In case you’re not aware of Cosmos DB, Azure Cosmos DB is a globally distributed, highly-available, multi-model database service. In this video, join us as we demonstrate how to get started with our new SDKs, make the most of database-level throughput, and set up a CI/CD pipeline using the Azure Cosmos DB emulator build task for Azure Pipelines.

In this session from Build 2018, learn how to harness the power of Azure Cosmos DB, a NoSQL document-based database that offers a true “serverless data” experience.

Jeremy Likness shows you how to scale globally with point-and-click geo-replication and guaranteed single-digit latency. You’ll learn how to “choose your own API” and be able to interact with Azure Cosmos DB using the SQL API, MongoDB, Gremlin (graph-based), Table Storage, and Cassandra APIs. You’ll learn how to set up Azure Cosmos DB and build applications with demonstrations in .NET and .NET Core.

Carey MacDonald stops by to chat with Scott Hanselman about Azure Cosmos DB, a managed database service with unlimited horizontal scale, allowing you to scale storage and throughput independently.

In this video, Carey will cover how to partition your data in Azure Cosmos DB, best practices for choosing a partition key, and how to troubleshoot bad partition key choices.

Aravind Krishna stops by to chat with Scott Hanselman and take a look at common design patterns for building highly scalable solutions with Azure Cosmos DB.

The get into modeling data and how to choose an appropriate partition key. Then they look at a few patterns like event sourcing, time series data, and patterns for addressing bottlenecks/hot spots for reads, writes, and storage.

Jeremy Likness discusses ComosDB and what makes it a truly unique and flexible NoSQL cloud offering.

In this video, learn about the CosmosDB support for multiple APIs including table storage and MongoDB, all accessible from .NET and .NET Core applications.

Kirill Gavrylyuk and Scott Hanselman talk about native support for Apache Cassandra API in Azure Cosmos DB with wire protocol level compatibility.

This support ensures you can continue using your existing application and OSS tools with no code changes and gives you the flexibility to run your Cassandra apps fully managed with no vendor lock-in.

Scott Hanselman talks to Kirill Gavrylyuk  to find out what’s new in Azure Cosmos DB, such as the Cassandra API for applications that are written for Apache Cassandra, updates to the Azure Table storage API, the Apache Spark Connector, the Graph API, partitioned collections, 99.999% (five 9s) SLA, and more.
