- [Sahil] As we build more and more involved cloud-based applications, there is inevitably the need for the various parts of our solutions to talk to each other, not to mention a lot of long running tasks in the cloud are asynchronous in nature. So how do we know when one task finishes and the other needs to be informed? Classically, there has been a lot of polling involved. Are you done? Are you done? Are you done? And this causes your bill to go up, up and up because something is doing this polling and you're paying for that something.
Azure Event Grid, a fully managed event crowding service that works using a pub/sub model solves exactly this problem. And now because you're using a standard spaced eventing model, a number of possibilities open up for you. Suddenly, all of your services can talk with each other securely and effectively. Hi, my name is Sahil Malik, and welcome to Azure Event Grid.
