Azure Cosmos DB vs Celery: What are the differences?

Developers describe Azure Cosmos DB as "A fully-managed, globally distributed NoSQL database service". Azure DocumentDB is a fully managed NoSQL database service built for fast and predictable performance, high availability, elastic scaling, global distribution, and ease of development. On the other hand, Celery is detailed as "Distributed task queue". Celery is an asynchronous task queue/job queue based on distributed message passing. It is focused on real-time operation, but supports scheduling as well.

Azure Cosmos DB can be classified as a tool in the "NoSQL Database as a Service" category, while Celery is grouped under "Message Queue".

"Best-of-breed NoSQL features" is the primary reason why developers consider Azure Cosmos DB over the competitors, whereas "Task queue" was stated as the key factor in picking Celery.

Celery is an open source tool with 12.9K GitHub stars and 3.33K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Celery's open source repository on GitHub.

Udemy, Sentry, and Postmates are some of the popular companies that use Celery, whereas Azure Cosmos DB is used by Microsoft, Property With Potential, and Rumble. Celery has a broader approval, being mentioned in 272 company stacks & 77 developers stacks; compared to Azure Cosmos DB, which is listed in 24 company stacks and 24 developer stacks.
