Taking Advantage of the Azure Service Bus

The Windows Azure Service Bus provides a convenient way to communicate between nodes, roles, and/or applications in a widely distributed solution that requires scalability and high availability. Although the Windows Azure Service Bus also provides relayed messaging, I will concentrate on the brokered messaging functionality in this section. Information on the Service Bus relay functionality is available here.

Queues

Queues in the Windows Azure Service Bus are somewhat similar to the queues I talked about in Queue Storage. However, the queues provided in the Service Bus are better suited for the majority of scenarios that require a service bus. As I mentioned previously, the MSDN page that compares and contrasts these two technologies provides all the information you will need to determine which option is right for your specific scenario.
