Create Multiple Cosmos DB Containers

Cosmos DB is a multi-master, multi-model, NoSQL database service built for planet scale (the hint is in the name: Cosmos!). In this hands-on lab, we'll use the Azure Portal to create a Cosmos DB account and two collections. By the end of the beginner hands-on lab, you'll have a good understanding of how Cosmos DB is structured, and the importance of the Cosmos DB API, and throughput configuration. The objectives for this hands-on lab can be completed using the Azure Portal. As this is a beginner hands-on lab, no development or MongoDB tools will be required.
