Reliable event delivery at massive scale
Use Event Grid to power your event-driven and serverless apps
Simplify your event-based apps with Event Grid, a single service for managing routing of all events from any source to any destination. Designed for high availability, consistent performance, and dynamic scale, Event Grid lets you focus on your app logic rather than infrastructure.
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.
Example uses for Event Grid
Serverless application architectures in the cloud
Event Grid connects data sources and event handlers. For example, use Event Grid to instantly trigger a serverless function to run image analysis each time a new photo is added to a blob storage container.
Event Grid allows you to speed automation and simplify policy enforcement. For example, Event Grid can notify Azure Automation when a virtual machine is created, or a SQL Database is spun up. These events can be used to automatically check that service configurations are compliant, put metadata into operations tools, tag virtual machines, or file work items.
Event Grid connects your app with other services. For example, create a topic to send your app's event data to Event Grid, and get reliable delivery and advanced routing on Azure and on Kubernetes. Use Event Grid with Azure Logic Apps to process data anywhere, without writing code.
Event Grid pricing
Event Grid provides reliable message delivery at massive scale and can be used as a fully managed service on Azure or on your own Kubernetes clusters. Use Event Grid to build reactive, event-driven apps in a modern, serverless or on-prem compute architecture—eliminating polling and its associated cost and latency.
