How did Cosmos DB started at Microsoft? Or Why did you decide to build Cosmos DB? We heard that it is used extensively within Microsoft, is it true? RB - What is the programming language in which Cosmos DB is written? SB - What makes Cosmos DB special? Can you give us more insights into its capabilities? (resume) RB - When we heard your podcast episode in Data Skeptic, there was a mention of "Auto Index". You explained it quite well at high level and how it gives freedom to developer from worries related to indexing as their application scale up. Our follow up question to that is how does this Auto-indexing work internally? Does Cosmos keep track of most used data internally in some kind of table/tree structure to determine this? Is this based on an existing algorithm in Computer Science realm or something propriety? SB - Can you tell us more about the new capabilities and features your team is working on? RB - We see that Cosmos DB keeps shipping new features every few weeks. Can you tell us how do you roll out new features?
