Microsoft Windows Azure team annouced the availability of the relay load balancing for Windows Azure Service Bus.
“Relay load balancing greatly simplifies the task of achieving high availability, redundancy, and scalability by supporting multiple listeners per relay endpoint (up to 25) and distributing work across listeners.”
“On Friday we added relay load balancing to the Service Bus with support for up to 25 listeners per relay endpoint,” announced Azure team.
The team member said, “If your existing solution relies on failover through receiving an AddressAlreadyInUse exception for the same relay endpoint, you will no longer see this behavior.”
Adding, the official said, “This service update follows closely on the heels of our Pub-Sub messaging enhancements at the BUILD conference, and marks the second enhancement to the Service Bus in less than 45 days.”
Additional information on this new functionality can be found on the Connectivity and Messaging forum and Service Bus release notes site.
“The Service Bus provides secure messaging and connectivity capabilities that enable building distributed and loosely-coupled applications in the cloud, as well hybrid application across both on-premises and the cloud. It enables using various communication and messaging protocols and patterns, and saves the need for the developer to worry about delivery assurance, reliable messaging and scale.”
