Azure Cosmos DB for NoSQL

You can use the Commvault software to back up and restore Azure Cosmos DB for NoSQL database containers across multiple Azure accounts and regions. You can schedule full and incremental backups of database containers to meet recovery point objectives (RPO), long-term retention, and compliance needs.

Key Features

  • You can manage containers from multiple Cosmos DB for NoSQL accounts, all from the Command Center.

  • You can back up and restore individual containers or databases, or the entire account.

  • During backups and restores, if the primary access node is not accessible, you can automatically fail over the access node.

  • For all backups and restores, you can change the access node.
