Caution required with BizTalk’s SB-Messaging adapter

Caution road sign

BizTalk 2013 ships with a native adapter for the Windows Azure Service Bus – the SB-Messaging adapter.

 

The adapter provides a very easy to use approach to receiving and sending messages to and from a service bus queue/topic/subscription but, as it turns out, it might be that it is a little bit simplistic or – at the very least – some caution is required >>> More

Windows Azure Private Network behaviour change

Road Sign Bend

I’ve learnt today that IP routing on Windows Azure when a private network (VPN) is configured has changed recently (not quite sure exactly when, but in the last few weeks I suspect) in a way that can be quite dramatic to many.

I thought this point is very true and the clarity and visibility that cloud brings with regards to cost that rarely exists for on-premises solution does risk muddying the water somewhat. Pragmatic teams would weigh in additional costs associated with better design with long term benefits, but I can see how this can go wrong for some. >>> More
