Watch this video to get an introduction to the new Cassandra API for Azure Cosmos DB

Watch and learn how to take advantage of this fully managed globally distributed database service with limitless scale.

Veljko Vasic explains how Azure SQL Database uses built-in intelligence to continuously monitors database usage so that it can detect disruptive events that cause poor performance.
