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.

 

  

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

This new API allows you to move your existing Cassandra applications to Azure Cosmos DB without modifying a single line of code.

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

If my previous post about the graph data structure has you eager to get started, then check out this video with Kirill Gavrylyuk. He talks Azure Cosmos DB and Graphs with Scott, exploring why we need graphs, and what we can be done with graphs on Azure Cosmos DB.

Azure Cosmos DB offers native graph gremlin API support in addition MongoDB, SQL, and others. Graphs in Azure Cosmos DB also enjoy the same global distribution, low latency, limitless throughput, and 99.99% SLAs as other APIs.
