About Fusion restaurants: it's pretty rare for them to do everything (or even most things) at a master chef level.
I've never worked with CosmosDB, so I don't speak from experience here.
Pun intended, you said a mouthful there.
The thing about cloud database services is that they don't need to be expertly optimized in the same way as an on-prem SQL Server instance. These databases are scaled out across distributed nodes - either on demand, on a schedule for known usage peaks, or in response to pressure from unexpected spikes.
I honestly don't know if I've ever eaten a meal prepared by a master chef. When I'm eating lunch out, I'm typically looking for a meal that's prepared well enough, something different that's within my budget and time constraint. That's actually what a lot of customers are looking for when it comes time to host a database for their application. The masters can focus on other applications that require their higher skill level.
