Updating inverted file index using multi tier
There are some feature differences between Table API in Azure Cosmos DB and Azure table storage, to learn more and try out the premium experience, please check out Azure Cosmos DB Table API.
In addition, each of the user-defined properties such as First Name or Age has a data type, such as integer or string, just like a column in a relational database.Although unlike in a relational database, the schema-less nature of the Table service means that a property need not have the same data type on each entity.To store complex data types in a single property, you must use a serialized format such as JSON or XML.As well as being part of the addressing scheme for entities, partitions define a scope for transactions (see Entity Group Transactions below), and form the basis of how the table service scales.
For more information on partitions, see Azure Storage Scalability and Performance Targets.
In the Table service, an individual node services one or more complete partitions and the service scales by dynamically load-balancing partitions across nodes.
