Use Event Grid to power your event-driven and serverless apps
Support for a rich set of use cases.
Reliable event handling and delivery.
Support for CloudEvents 1.0, an open-standard specification.
Available on Azure and Kubernetes.
Simplify event delivery
Eliminate polling—and the associated cost and latency. With Event Grid, event publishers are decoupled from event subscribers using a pub/sub model and simple HTTP-based event delivery allowing you to build scalable serverless applications, microservices, and distributed systems.
Build reliable cloud applications
Gain massive scale, dynamically, while getting near-real-time notifications for changes you're interested in. Build better, more reliable applications through reactive programming, capitalizing on guaranteed event delivery and the high availability of the cloud.
Focus on product innovation
Develop richer application scenarios by connecting multiple possible sources and destinations of events. Your business logic can be triggered by virtually all Azure services, as well as custom sources. Fully managed event handling with delivery, intelligent filtering, and the ability to send events to multiple recipients at once allow you to focus on solving business problems rather than infrastructure.
Streamline event-driven integration
Integrate workloads hosted on the cloud or Kubernetes using event-driven architectures in Event Grid. Manage Event Grid resources on the cloud or Kubernetes using a single control plane on Azure. Take advantage of hybrid architectures to forward events from Kubernetes to Azure destinations.
