Relational databases have been built upon for decades—but as flexible as it is, the relational model can’t accommodate all of the complex scenarios incurred in modern application development.

Enter Azure Cosmos DB, a globally distributed database with agility at built into its very core. The benefits are compelling for businesses looking to escape the confines of SQL and find flexible solutions to keep growing:

  • It supports multiple models (key-value, columnar, document, graphs—and more to come), and various APIs.
  • It’s ideal for applications that require global scale (e.g., manufacturing systems, mobile apps).
