DocumentDB

Robert Sheldon walks us through DocumentDB:

DocumentDB organizes documents into collections, with each database capable of hosting one or more collection. Because DocumentDB is a cloud service, it offers quick and easy implementations, while delivering the flexibility and scalability necessary to meet the demands of todays web and mobile applications.

DocumentDB integrates JSON and JavaScript right into the database engine. JSON, short for JavaScript Object Notation, is a widely implemented lightweight format for exchanging data between different source types, similar to how XML can be used to exchange data. JSON is based on a subset of the JavaScript programming language and is easy for computers to parse and generate, as well as being human readable.
