Microsoft has just released the public preview of Azure App Service, a new Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering for web and mobile apps that allows you to build quickly and easily a new integration solutions.
If you happened to be working on Microsoft Integration platform you should definitely tune in to Scott Guthrie’s Azure Announcement where Scott Guthrie and Bill Staples introduce Azure App Service and show how you can build cloud scale web and mobile apps faster than ever before and with less code.
After the Integrate Summit in December last year, the term “microservices” has suddenly gained new interest in the Microsoft integration community.
At INTEGRATE 2014 Microsoft detailed the new Application platform concepts on how they were going to build their PaaS story in Azure around the Microservices architecture and how the integration capabilities would fit in. Today they released the preview for these capabilities.
The proposed platform consist of discrete components (microservices) selected from the gallery, composed within a browser-based IDE and deployed to an Azure Web Site container.
Azure App Service today includes support for the following built-in connectors that you can use to construct and automate your Logic App workflows:
Combined the above connectors provide a super powerful way to build and orchestrate tasks that run and scale within your apps. You can now build much richer web and mobile apps using it.
Watch this Azure Friday video about Logic Apps with Scott Hanselman and Josh Twist to learn more about how to use it.
