Each Azure subscription has a bunch of limits and quotas. Most of these are 'soft' limits, meaning that they can be raised on your request. But do you need keep an eye on those limits yourself?

My Microsoft colleagues Burke Holland and Cecil Phillip built a very useful application called 'The Urlist' using a serverless approach with Azure Functions and Cosmos DB.
