Microsoft Releases Preview Version of DocumentDB

The new service brings a NoSQL database to the Azure cloud computing service.


Microsoft has launched a preview version of DocumentDB, its NoSQL database service for Azure. Microsoft's Scott Guthrie explained, "It allows you to store and query any JSON [JavaScript Object Notation] document, regardless of schema. The service provides built-in automatic indexing support—which means you can write JSON documents to the store and immediately query them using a familiar document-oriented SQL query grammar." DocumentDB can be found in the Azure Preview portal in the cache + backup section.

In related news, Microsoft also debuted a preview of Azure Search, which makes it easier for developers to add search capabilities in their applications.
