General availability: Event Hubs for Go
Posted on 10 September 2018
Version 1.0 of the Azure Event Hubs package for Go is now generally available.
Event Hubs queues can receive millions of events per second from sources like Azure IoT hubs, cloud application logs, and data analysis services like Azure HDInsight. The queues can route these events to managed services like Azure Stream Analytics, Azure Functions, and Azure Cosmos DB. By using this new package, developers can send events from any Go application to Event Hubs and receive and handle events in Go applications and systems.
The new Event Hubs package is built on the AMQP protocol as implemented by github.com/vcabbage/amqp. AMQP provides support for reliable connections, high throughput, and compatibility with projects like Apache ActiveMQ and Amazon MQ. The package also includes an Event Processor Host framework for distributing and load balancing event processing across several hosts.
