Rolf Tesmer shows us how to connect to Azure CosmosDB using a linked server:

Recently I had a requirement to combine data that I already had in SQL Server (2016)with JSON document data already stored in Azure CosmosDB.  Both databases were operational and continuously accepting data so I didn’t want to go to the trouble of doing the delta load thing between them, instead I just wanted to be able to query directly on demand.

And so – the purpose of this article is to outline the method to connect direct to Azure CosmosDB from SQL Server using a SQL Linked Server.

Click through for the step-by-step details.  Ultimately, it’s a linked server connecting via ODBC, so nothing magical—but it is nice to see interoperability.
