  • Cosmos DB Performance with Geospatial Data

    pexels-photo-348489[1]Time for some performance tests on Cosmos DB around Geospatial coordinates!

    Let’s hurt the service and see where it shines, where it has a hard time and how scaling it (i.e. increasing Request Units or RUs) helps.

    We’ll publish an how-to create the same setup in a future article...
