We have just released a major update to our pricing for Cosmos DB.
Starting today, customers can now provision a database with just 400 RU/s (or about $ 0.77/day USD). Combined with the ability to share throughput across collections this should make Cosmos DB much more affordable to users with many small collections
We invite you to checkout our new pricing in the Azure Portal and give us feedback.
Thank you for your patience and feedback.
Thanks for the post , votes, and comments. We are aware of this limitation and are targeting sometime next year to improve this experience. In the meantime you can sign up for a new account in your desired country and transfer your assets to the new account via Support.
