Azure Cosmos DB vs ZeroMQ: What are the differences?

Azure Cosmos DB: 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; ZeroMQ: Fast, lightweight messaging library that allows you to design complex communication system without much effort. The 0MQ lightweight messaging kernel is a library which extends the standard socket interfaces with features traditionally provided by specialised messaging middleware products. 0MQ sockets provide an abstraction of asynchronous message queues, multiple messaging patterns, message filtering (subscriptions), seamless access to multiple transport protocols and more.

Azure Cosmos DB and ZeroMQ are primarily classified as "NoSQL Database as a Service" and "Message Queue" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by Azure Cosmos DB are:

  • Fully managed with 99.99% Availability SLA
  • Elastically and highly scalable (both throughput and storage)
  • Predictable low latency: <10ms @ P99 reads and <15ms @ P99 fully-indexed writes

On the other hand, ZeroMQ provides the following key features:

  • Connect your code in any language, on any platform.
  • Carries messages across inproc, IPC, TCP, TPIC, multicast.
  • Smart patterns like pub-sub, push-pull, and router-dealer.

"Best-of-breed NoSQL features" is the top reason why over 13 developers like Azure Cosmos DB, while over 17 developers mention "Fast" as the leading cause for choosing ZeroMQ.

ZeroMQ is an open source tool with 5.34K GitHub stars and 1.57K GitHub forks. Here's a link to ZeroMQ's open source repository on GitHub.

Microsoft, Property With Potential, and Rumble are some of the popular companies that use Azure Cosmos DB, whereas ZeroMQ is used by Binary.com, indico, and SocialDecode. Azure Cosmos DB has a broader approval, being mentioned in 24 company stacks & 24 developers stacks; compared to ZeroMQ, which is listed in 35 company stacks and 12 developer stacks.
