The Windows Azure Service Bus provides connectivity and messaging capabilities in the cloud.
The relay service provides a means of enabling internet connectivity to services and devices internal networks. The brokered messaging capabilities of the Windows Azure Service Bus add enterprise class durable messaging to the Windows Azure platform. Point-to-point and publish-subscribe messaging patters are provided by queues, topics and subscriptions. Message routing, expiration, message sessions and correlation allow sophisticated and reliable messaging systems to be implemented.
This demo intensive session will show how these capabilities can be leveraged from both cloud-based and on-premise applications. It will also provide guidance and tips on using service bus brokered messaging in real world scenarios and show comparisons with on-premise messaging solutions such as BizTalk Server and MSMQ.
