Cosmos DB is a globally-distributed, secure, PaaS, multi-model, multi-API database with a choice of consistency models, enterprise SLAs, encryption and guaranteed latency. This session will cover Cosmos DB’s main features in the context of an Aircraft tracking use-case developed by endjin. We will cover the benefits that made Cosmos DB the right choice to support a global, mission-critical application. There will be a live demo of the solution architecture, operational system, example queries, and performance optimisation strategies. We will also show examples of how we integrated with Azure Functions and Power BI to create real-time analytics over the ingested flight data.
