About this Hands-on Lab

As modern, cloud-based apps have evolved, they’ve required data storage to adapt with them. Services such as Azure Cosmos DB have risen to the challenge by providing a fully managed, multi-model, globally distributed NoSQL database.

In this hands-on lab scenario, your organization, *Awesome Company*, is developing a next-generation video game that will rely heavily on the cloud. In order to achieve guaranteed performance around the globe, you’ve chosen Azure Cosmos DB as the data backend. A key component of achieving that goal is configuring your database account to have writeable copies in multiple regions.

Performing the actions of this lab will help you become familiar with how to expand your Azure Cosmos DB account to other regions around the globe.

**Note: Because the Azure Cosmos DB account is a pre-provisioned environment, it will take significant time for the lab to start. Please be patient, and make sure you have at least an hour of time for completion of the lab.**
