  • Infrastructure as code (IaC) for Java-based apps on Azure
    Sometimes you don’t need an entire Java-based microservice. You can build serverless APIs with the help of Azure Functions. For example, Azure functions have a bunch of built-in connectors like Azure Event Hubs to process event-driven Java code and send the data to Azure Cosmos DB in real-time. FedEx and UBS projects are great examples of real-time, event-driven Java. I also recommend you to go through 👉 Code,... - Source: / 6 months ago
  • Deploying a Mostly Serverless Website on GCP
    When debating the database solution for our application we were really seeking for a scalable serverless database that wouldn’t bill us for idle time. Options like AWS Athena, AWS Aurora Serverless, and Azure Cosmos DB immediately came to mind. We believed that GCP would have a comparable service, yet we could not find one. Even after consulting the GCP cloud service comparison documentation we were still unable... - Source: / 8 months ago

  • Basic Setup for Azure Cosmos DB and Example Node App
    I have had an opportunity to work on a project that uses Azure Cosmos DB with the MongDB API as the backend database. I wanted to spend a little more time on my own understanding how to perform basic setup and a simple set of CRUD operations from a Node application, as well as construct an easy-to-follow procedure for other developers. - Source: / 12 months ago

Cosmos abstracts away its internal data model and provides APIs for interacting with data as if it were a MongoDB or Cassandra database, making it truly multi-model. - Source: / over 1 year ago
  • A MongoDB Learning journey
    Until I joined my new role at Introvoke in late April 2021, my primary exposure to NoSQL technology was via Azure Cosmos DB. To appeal to enterprise developers like myself, Cosmos DB offers a SQL like query language and that is what I defaulted to when I used Cosmos DB. - Source: / over 1 year ago
  • Managing the infrastructure of a reusable ecommerce platform with Terraform
    In the ones where we need a persistence layer, we rely on the resources Azure Cosmos DB or Azure Database for PostgreSQL. Other services provide an API to search among a catalog of products with Azure Cognitive Search. As I will explain later, we work with different environments, therefore, creating and updating the resources across them becomes a harder task. - Source: / almost 2 years ago
  • Setting up demos in Azure - Part 1: ARM templates
    For the database, I'm using Azure SQL, as SQL is very prevalent and how it fits in an event-driven system is pretty relevant. I'm still thinking if I should use Azure Cosmos DB as well. On one hand adding a NoSQL database into the mix is very interesting, but on the other, the presentation cannot last hours 😛. - Source: / about 2 years ago
