At Ignite 2022, Azure Cosmos DB had a lot of news – the big one being Azure Cosmos DB for PostgreSQL. The one that others may not have caught was the renaming of the APIs. These are the APIs for Azure Cosmos DB and how they map to old names:

Old API Name New API Name Use
Azure Cosmos DB Core (SQL) API Azure Cosmos DB for NoSQL The core API for Azure Cosmos DB
Azure Cosmos DB API for MongoDB Azure Cosmos DB for MongoDB MongoDB workloads, document database
Azure Cosmos DB Cassandra API Azure Cosmos DB for Apache Cassandra Cassandra workloads, wide-column store
Azure Cosmos DB Table API Azure Cosmos DB for Table Migrating from Azure Table storage to Azure Cosmos DB
