Windows Azure Storage Part II — Queues

  • Tejaswi Redkar


The Windows Azure Queue service is an Internet-scale message queuing system for cross-service communications. Even though the service is called a queue, the messages aren’t guaranteed to follow the First In First Out (FIFO) pattern. The design focus of the Queue service is on providing a highly scalable and available asynchronous message communication system that’s accessible anywhere, anytime. The Queue service provides a REST API for applications to use the large-scale Queue service infrastructure.
