  1. Auto-Scale Tiers

We are excited to announce that the Auto-Scale feature is coming soon to vCore-based Azure Cosmos DB for MongoDB. This upcoming feature promises instantaneous compute scalability, adapting swiftly to increased demand. It’s designed to be a cost-effective solution, ensuring databases can handle peak loads effortlessly. With Auto-Scale, customers will only pay for the resources they use, providing developers with more flexibility to control costs. This solution will be particularly beneficial for customers who tend to overprovision their databases to handle workload spikes. Stay tuned for this exciting update!

  1. Cross Region Replication

We are excited to introduce Cross Region Replication in vCore-based Azure Cosmos DB for MongoDB. This feature allows data replication from a primary region cluster to a replica cluster in another Azure region. This guarantees data accessibility even in the unlikely event of a primary region outage. Furthermore, activating cross-region replication enhances both performance and scalability for workloads that are read-intensive.

Stay tuned for more updates as we continue to innovate and enhance our offerings! Thank you for your continued support.
