Service Bus

Reliable cloud messaging as a service (MaaS) and simple hybrid integration

Simplify enterprise cloud messaging

Depend on Azure Service Bus when you need highly-reliable cloud messaging service between applications and services, even when one or more is offline. Available in every Azure region, this fully-managed service eliminates the burdens of server management and licensing. Asynchronous operations enable flexible, brokered messaging between client and server, along with structured first-in-first-out (FIFO) messaging and publish/subscribe capabilities—perfect for tasks such as order processing.
