Jet.com

Data at Jet.com and Walmart Labs is scale. E-commerce will be a $1 trillion business in the next five to ten years, and Azure Cosmos DB is critical to our vision, because we need a database that will elastically scale with us. Not only that - but we also need true elasticity and the ability to scale up/down on demand to help us manage our costs carefully. We experience big peaks during key shopping days, where expected rates of events can increase 10 to 20 compared to the rest of the year.

For example, for Black Friday and Cyber Monday - we needed the ability to enough provisioned throughput to satisfy 1 trillion Request Units over 24 hours to satisfy our customer demand. To solve this - we deployed a geo-replicated Cosmos DB collection configured for 10 million request units per second. For example, for Black Friday and Cyber Monday - we needed the ability to enough provisioned throughput to satisfy 1 trillion Request Units over 24 hours to satisfy our customer demand. To solve this - we deployed a geo-replicated Cosmos DB collection configured for 10 million request units per second.

Cosmos DB's elastic scale, automatic indexing and Change Feed support makes it an excellent event store for event sourcing. Heterogeneous events can be automatically indexed for query, and the event log exposed through Change Feed can be used to reconstruct past states. Performing writes in an append-only manner via event sourcing is fast and scalable for systems that are write-heavy, in particular when used in combination with a write-optimized database. Many of our microservices are mission critical components to our business. Cosmos DB gives us peace of mind with an aggressive 99.99% availability guarantee when deployed to a single region - which is further strengthened to 99.999% when deployed across regions using Cosmos DB's global distribution.
