Service Broker message exchange for Azure SQL Managed Instance in public preview

Published date: March 17, 2021

The Service Broker component of Azure SQL Managed Instance allows you to compose your applications from independent, self-contained services, by providing native support for reliable and secure message exchange between the databases attached to the services. With preview support for cross-instance message exchange, Azure SQL Managed Instance can host a data tier of applications that distribute work across multiple instances. Instances can be hosted in different Azure regions and belong to different Azure subscriptions and Azure AD tenants, thanks to establishing certificate-based trust.

Whether you are looking into migrating your existing solution leveraging Service Broker to Azure or building brand new modern applications in Azure, the cross-instance Service Broker messaging capabilities can unlock new scenarios and improve efficiency of your solution.
