Learn about two Azure services developers use to build fast and responsive applications.

First, Program Manager Thomas Weiss walks through the new serverless model for Azure Cosmos DB, the fast NoSQL database built to run mission-critical applications at any scale.

Then, take a tour of Azure Cache Redis, a fully managed cache service that helps applications scale as they gain more users.

Program Manager Carolina Uribe-Gosselin will share an overview of the service and the powerful new integration of Redis Enterprise in partnership with Redis Labs.

Data modeling is the process of establishing patterns and rules for how data is stored in database documents and containers and how it is accessed.

You can significantly improve speed and performance of Azure Cosmos DB – especially for your most frequent queries – by choosing the data model that best fits the needs of your application.

In less than two minutes, learn about the key considerations for choosing the right data model, the differences between embedding and referencing data, and how the Azure Cosmos DB change feed can eliminate data duplication.
