Ensure high-accuracy, efficient vector search at massive scale with Azure Cosmos DB. Leveraging Microsoft’s DiskANN, more IO traffic moves to disk to maximize storage capacity and enable high-speed similarity searches across all data, reducing memory dependency. This technology, powering global services like Microsoft 365, is now integrated into Azure Cosmos DB, enabling developers to build scalable, high-performance applications with built-in vector search, real-time fraud detection, and robust multi-tenancy support.

Join Kirill Gavrylyuk, VP for Azure Cosmos DB, as he shares how Azure Cosmos DB with DiskANN offers unparalleled speed, efficiency, and accuracy, making it the ideal solution for modern AI-driven applications.
