In today’s post I’d like to talk about Azure Queues. There are currently 2 queue options available – Storage Queues and Service Bus Queues. Let me tell you about the benefits of each, as well as the scenarios each are best for.
The first to Azure were Azure Storage Queues and are part of Azure storage. They feature a simple rest interface with Get, Put and Peak commands. Storage Queues are a reliable, persistent messaging mechanism for working within and between various services and environments.
Service Bus Queues are at the heart of the broader Azure messaging infrastructure which supports Pub Sub and other advanced patterns. These queues also have more support for integrating applications or parts of applications which can then span multiple communication protocols, data contracts, trust domains and network environments.
As Service Bus Queues were introduced later in Azure, they have significantly more options to meet solution application requirements that arise in your environment. Let’s take a look at 3 reasons for each that you may choose one over the other.
