Cost cutting strategies for Azure Cosmos DB

Cosmos DB’s partition key distributes all requests and storage. In addition, partition key intelligently routes queries for efficiency.
Choosing the right partition key for your Azure Cosmos DB containers is an important task. In the first half of this session, I will explain how Physical and logical partitions work in Azure Cosmos DB.
We will explore the importance of indexing data properties. This step is critical in Cosmos DB just like many other databases. You can easily reduce your Azure Cosmos DB bill by indexing the right properties of your data. In the second half of this session, we will focus on expanding upon available index types of Cosmos DB. I will explain how to handle Indexing policies to include or exclude data properties.
Please join me as I share how to develop affordable, scalable, and fast Azure Cosmos DB solutions.
