This seems fairly obvious now that it is on the Microsoft platform.
We’re excited to announce that we are making this a lot easier with our preview of Autopilot. With Autopilot, Azure Cosmos DB will automatically manage and scale the RU/s of your containers based on the usage. This eliminates the need for custom scripting to change RU/s and makes it easier to handle bursty, unpredictable workloads.
You can try out Autopilot in your Cosmos accounts by going to the Azure Portal and enabling the feature in the “Preview Features” blade.
Just a quick update. Work on this feature continues but is taking longer than expected.
We have recently published guidance how how users who can run Windows in a VM whether on Parallels or Virtual Box with a Mac or Linux host can use the Cosmos emulator. Please feel free to use this as a workaround.
When this feature is complete we will update here.
This is not on our roadmap but will continue to review this request in future planning cycles.
Thank you for your suggestion.
