We are excited to announce a new integration with CockroachDB, an open source distributed SQL database. CockroachDB assures ACID semantics and aims to make it easy to scale horizontally by adding nodes instead of manually sharding the database.
Azure Functions is Microsoft’s solution to serverless computing. While it actually does run on servers, the key difference here is that you aren’t responsible for maintaining the function hosting environment. This is both a blessing and a curse.
