When Windows Azure was originally released a built in queuing feature was included. The Windows Azure Storage Queues were the suggested way for compute instances and applications to talk to each other. Flash forward a few years and now another queue feature appears on the Windows Azure scene with Service Bus Queues and Topics. So, why are there two queue technologies? How do they differ? When should you choose one over the other? These are the questions we'll look to answer in this session.
