When considering a new product, it’s great to “kick the tires” at no cost. There are four FREE ways to try Azure Cosmos DB, Microsoft’s cloud NoSQL database service. The one to choose depends on your goals.
If you’re new to Azure, sign up for an Azure free account and get 400 RU/s provisioned throughput and 25 GB storage each month for a year on Azure Cosmos DB. You’ll also get a one-time credit of $200 to use on Azure services over your first 30 days.
If you already use Azure, simply create a new Azure Cosmos DB account in the Azure portal and apply the free tier discount during set-up. Once activated, Azure Cosmos DB free tier offers 400 RU/s provisioned throughput and 5 GB storage each month for the life of your account.
