//build/–Service Bus for Windows Server

Some of my old colleagues recently shipped Service Bus 1.0 for Windows Server. Microsoft is striving for ‘symmetry’ across of it’s services whereby the same services are available both in the cloud on Azure and on-premise. Another reason that this release is interesting is because it targets the scenarios where until now only MSMQ or BizTalk were positioned. Service Bus supports both queues (durable FIFO queues) and topics (durable publish / subscribe) currently. As well as durable queuing Service Bus also enables store and forward capabilities using the topic support. Service Bus’s durable queues are unsurprisingly built on top of SQL Server for its persistence layer which should make it easier to architect highly available deployments.

Service Bus also has support now for the AMQP protocol now, which is rapidly growing in adoption.
