Creator of GitDocumentDB

GitDocumentDB is compatible with Git. Distributed multi-primary databases and efficient CI/CD are inherited features from Git.

fully automated


  • It automates Git synchronization workflows by resolving transactional and consistency conflicts, besides revision conflicts.
  • Typical synchronization patterns and diff-and-patch strategies solve them. Accessible CRUD and collection APIs for working with JSON reduce tasks.


  • The throughput of GitDocumentDB is about the same as Git. It is not as fast as typical databases.
  • Storage size grows when managing many revisions of a document.

These are a trade-off for Git features.
