Azure #DocumentDB Service Level Agreements

Community Manager

Enterprise applications and massive scale applications need a data store that is globally distributed, offers limitless scale, geographical reach, and is fast and performant. Along with enterprise grade security and compliance, a major criterion is the level of service guarantees the database provides in terms of availability, performance, and durability. Azure DocumentDB is Microsoft’s globally distributed database service designed to enable you to build planet-scale applications, enabling you to elastically scale both throughput and storage across any number of geographical regions. The service offers guaranteed single-digit millisecond low latency at the 99th percentile, 99.99% high availability, predictable throughput, and multiple well-defined consistency models.


We recently updated our Service Level Agreements (SLA) to make them comprehensive to include latency, availability, throughput, and consistency. By virtue of its schema-agnostic and write-optimized database engine, DocumentDB, by default, is capable of automatically indexing all the data it ingests and serves across SQL, MongoDB, and JavaScript language-integrated queries in a scale-independent manner. As one of the foundational services of Azure, DocumentDB has been used virtually ubiquitously as a backend for first-party Microsoft services for many years. Since its general availability in 2015, DocumentDB is one of the fastest growing services on Azure.
