A Tour of Azure Messaging Services (Queues, Event Grid, IoT Hub, and More)

In the early days of Microsoft Azure, there was a single Message Queue service; the Azure Storage Queue. This was way back in early 2010, however, soon after that Microsoft introduced another messaging service called Service Bus; then soon after another, and another! Over the years, there have been a few different messaging and message queue services introduced into the Microsoft Azure platform. Each of these messaging services are a little different than each other and offer a pretty wide range of messaging offerings to choose from. This article walks through the primary features of each of the Microsoft Azure messaging services, and will help give you an understanding of when to use each for your own applications and enterprise scenarios.

What is Azure Event Grid?

Azure Event Grid is a messaging service built to enable event-based architectures to be built more easily. At the basic level it’s similar to a message queue service, like Azure Service Bus Topics, that enables a publish / subscribe model. However, the similarity really ends there. Azure Event Grid is a different kind of messaging service that’s built to enable event-based architectures like those use with Microservices architectures to be built more easily. Read More

MkeAzure Slides: Getting Started with IoT using Azure, Windows IoT and Raspberry Pi

On Aug 17, 2016 I gave a “Getting Started with IoT” talk at the Milwaukee Azure group. In my talk I covered the basics of IoT Messaging Architecture and Azure IoT Suite (specifically IoT Hub and Stream Analytics), along with other Azure services such as Service Bus Queus, DocumentDB, and Azure Functions. No, IoT solution is complete with out an actual hardware device, so I showed what’s necessary to get started with Windows IoT development on a Raspberry Pi 2/3 along with an Adafruit BME280 Temp/Humidity/Pressure sensor and an LED wired up to the device.

Messaging Architecture: What is AMQP?

Messaging has become pretty fundamental with the wider adoption of Microservices and other cloud design pattern. There are many ways to transmit a message. Many messaging systems today, like Azure Service Bus, use a protocol called AMQP, or the Advanced Message Queuing Protocol. While AMQP is used behind the scene in messaging systems, let’s explore a little bit of what it is. Read More

Using Azure Storage Queues from .NET

Azure Storage Queues provide an easy to implement messaging communication mechanism for reliably passing messages to/from different components of a single application or multiple applications. Storage Queues have an HTTP/HTTPS API to allow for support of any development platform; however, Microsoft does provide a .NET SDK to make it even easier to implement from C# or other .NET languages.

Using Azure Service Bus Queues from .NET

AzureServiceBusQueueLogo_150The Azure Service Bus Queue feature offers easy to implement infrastructure for implementing brokered messaging communication.

Implementing a Message Queue requires the implementation of at least two application components: a Sender and a Receiver. The Sender will send messages to the Queue, while the Receiver will pull messages from the Queue to take action on. Both of these happen Asynchronously when working with Microsoft Azure Service Bus Queues. Read More

What is Azure Service Bus?

Microsoft Azure Service Bus provides an PaaS (Platform as a Service) communications platform built to allow more robust, multi-tenant software systems to be built in the cloud. There are four main feature sets within Azure Service Bus (Queues, Topics, Relays, and Event Hubs) that all offer different communications mediums for use with and between the different tenants of cloud hosted and hybrid (cloud and on-premises) hosted applications.
