Every platform has limits, workstations and physical servers have resource boundaries, APIs may be rate-limited, and even the perceived endlessness of the virtual public cloud enforce limitations that protect the platform from overuse or misuse (Azure).
Earlier this year in July, we announced the public preview for Virtual Network Service Endpoints and Firewall rules for both Azure Event Hubs and Azure Service Bus. Today, we’re excited to announce that we are making these capabilities generally available to our customers.
Azure Functions provides a powerful programming model for accelerated development and serverless hosting of event-driven applications. Ever since we announced the general availability of the Azure Functions 2.0 runtime, support for Python has been one of our top requests. At Microsoft Connect() last week, we announced the public preview of Python support in Azure Functions.
Serverless technologies empower developers to focus on the differentiating business logic in their apps as opposed to infrastructure management.
Serverless and PaaS are all about unleashing developer productivity by reducing the management burden and allowing you to focus on what matters most, your application logic.
We recently published a blog on a fraud detection solution delivered to a banking customer. The solution required complete processing of a streaming pipeline for telemetry data in real-time using a serverless architecture. This blog describes the evaluation process and the decision to use Microsoft Azure Functions.
Most modern applications are built using events whether it is reacting to changes coming from IoT devices, responding to a new listing in a marketplace solution, or initiating business processes from customer requests.
In today’s business environment, with the rapidly increasing volume of data and the growing pressure to respond to events in real-time, organizations need data-driven strategies to gain valuable insights faster and increase their competitive advantage.
As we continue to see our community grow around Event Grid, many of you have started to explore the boundaries of complexity and scale that can be achieved. We’ve been blown away with some of the system architectures we have seen built on top of the platform.
Today’s consumers are using more devices and channels to interact with retailers than ever before. Seamless service across all channels is the expectation, not the exception.
