I wanted to get some hands-on experience on Windows Azure for quite a while. I’ve read quite a bit on the topic and saw a good opportunity around the pub-sub area: if an enterprise wants to move applications in the cloud, sooner or later, there will be a need for a publication-subscription infrastructure.
For me the exercise is interesting for two main reasons. First it’s a concrete architecture based on the Windows Azure platform. Second it’s a new take on the old problem of pub-sub, in the context of cloud computing. Architecting a pub-sub infrastructure leveraging the scalability of Windows Azure is a truly exciting experience!
Currently, I only started the Architecture and contributed no code yet. But I’ll post blogs about the progress of that effort. Stay tuned!
