Learn how you can leverage the Spark connector for Azure Cosmos DB to enable real-time data science and exploration over planet-scale data. Azure Cosmos DB is the only globally distributed database that allows you to rapidly ingest, index, and query full-fidelity data collected in real-time from a variety of sources spread across the globe. These capabilities are extended by the Spark to Azure Cosmos DB connector to enable blazing fast analytics using Spark by efficiently exploiting Cosmos DB indexes with pushdown predicate filtering and enabling updateable columns while performing analytics. By the end of this session, you will have learned how you can use the Spark connector for Azure Cosmos DB in a variety of scenarios.
