Did you know that a single fiber-optic cable at an oil well generates more than a terabyte of data every day? Oil well sensors collect performance, temperature, pressure, and equipment health data; drill ships and production facilities are instrumented with thousands more sensors, generating even more data. Azure IoT hub will not only collect all that data; it can help…
What is an RU and how are they consumed? RUs measure the cost of both read and write operations against your Cosmos container. Discover more about RUs and Scaling throughput in Azure Cosmos DB. In Azure Cosmos DB, provisioned throughput is represented as request units/second (RU/s, plural: RUs). RUs measure the cost of both read and write operations against your Cosmos…
One of my favorite features of #CosmosDB is the change feed. It listens to an Azure Cosmos DB collection for any changes. It then outputs the sorted list of documents that were changed in the order in which they were modified. @AzureCosmosDB #Azure
Use device-to-cloud telemetry data to understand the state of your devices and define message routes to other Azure services without writing any code. In cloud-to-device messages, reliably send commands and notifications to your connected devices and track message delivery with acknowledgement receipts. Device messages are sent in a durable way to accommodate intermittently connected devices.
This next Azure Cosmos DB + Azure Functions recipe will show you how to customize the ConnectionMode and Protocol used in the Azure Functions bindings and triggers.
There are a lot of good reasons to use Azure Cosmos DB, as it offers a uniquely ‘single pane of glass’ over the increasingly ‘polyglot persistence’ world of enterprise data. One of the innovative ways in which it does this is with the tunable consistency feature for persisting data (see here for the documented 5 levels of consistency).

Problem Collecting and analyzing performance metrics is a key task for database environments and Azure is no different. In this tip we look at how to create a performance monitor dashboard in Azure. Solution While it’s by no means a substitute for monitoring software, Azure Log Analytics with Azure Dashboards is a handy place to do some “roll your own”…
This article will cover how to host a NodeJS Express server that serves your Create-React-App website and has an API that communicates with a Document DB, Azure Cosmos DB in this case (We will use MongooseJS to connect). Microsoft Azure also easily supports CI with your GitHub or Bitbucket repo!
