DocumentDB Databases
Azure DocumentDB is a NoSQL document database service designed from the ground up to natively support JSON and JavaScript directly inside the database engine. It’s an ideal and highly scalable solution for cloud apps that have predictable throughput, low latency, and flexible querying. With this system, you can implement rich queries over a schema-free JSON-based data model.
