Hello My Friends, Welcome to CosmosDB

Hello My Friends, Welcome to CosmosDB
Microsoft says Azure Cosmos DB is a globally distributed, multi-model database. Your reaction might be something like, "what the heck is it", "why would I use it", or "how do I use it". The fundamental purpose of this session is to answer those very questions. After briefly discussing what CosmosDB is, we’ll take some time to discuss why you might use CosmosDB instead of SQL Server or another platform, and finally touch on some basics to get you started with CosmosDB. Upon completion of this session, you will be better equipped to discuss the value of CosmosDB to your organization.


Peter Shore is a seasoned IT professional with over 20 years experience. He took the accidentally intentional DBA plunge in 2013 and has discovered that he loves to find the stories the data has to tell. Peter is comfortable working with both physical and virtual servers where he tries to apply best practices to attain performance improvements. He is also adept at bridging the gap between technical and business language in order to bring technology solutions to business needs.
