Azure also offers a bunch of App Services that you can take advantage of.…One of those is a Service Bus.…You can think of the Service Bus as a reliable loosely coupled queue.…For example in my own experience years ago creating a…website we had the ability to order catalogs from a system.…Those catalogs were tied to a mainframe back end…that was not able to service requests very quickly.…Our ASP front end web roles would quickly fill up…that queue, and the back end mainframe would actually halt…(LAUGH)…any new catalogs that were being requested.…
This might be the same in an E-Commerce website, for example.…If you have a tightly coupled back-end solution with your website, if the…back-end system goes down your website would be unable to process any orders.…A service bus would allow you to loosely couple these with a queue.…So that when things are added onto the queue from the website.…So, for example, an order, or a newsletter Sign…Up like we are building in our own app.…We don't have to worry about the back end not being able to service that as quickly.…
