Service Bus in production Environment RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi:

    I'm involved in a project in which Service Bus is perfect for centralize and distribute messages.

    I'm some questions about:

    ¿It's the current release ready for production environment?

    ¿It's recomended install Service Bus on Windows 7 or Windows 8 for production environment?

    We have now Windows 7 machines for video surveillance purpose. Use Windows Server it's not possible because the cost of the platform.

    Really Service Bus is very interesting for us but we need to use it now in production and using the client version of windows operating system.

    Thanks.

  • Hi,

    Service Bus 1.0 is only supported on Windows Server 2008 SP1 and Windows Server 2012. There may will be licencing issues as well as support issues running on desktop operating systems.

    The relay service is not cueenrtly available on-premise, there have been many customers requesting this, and it may be available at some point in the future, but there is no public information regarding this right now.

  • As Alan replied, Client OS (either Win7 or 8) are not supported for production.

    Service Bus is a server product and we require a Windows Server for production deployments.

    As to your first question: Service Bus is production ready and is already used by several customers including SharePoint 2013 for their workflow support.
