Cosmos Db for the SQL Server DBA

Cosmos is Azure's NoSQL Database as a Service, born in the cloud and designed take advantage of the flexibility, elasticity and global reach of cloud computing. Cosmos offers different access APIs, consistency models and performance management models that are different from a classic relational database like SQL Server. However, the same principles that you already apply as a SQL Dba are as important as ever to build a Cosmos application that performs well, is cost efficient and resilient to failures. In this session we will look at how Cosmos is different from a relational database, it's major features as a NoSQL cloud product and how you can apply your SQL Server experience to perform successful Cosmos deployments.
