    throttling seems to be one of the key areas we need to hear more about from microsoft around the new microservices stuff. I think Kent covered that area with very valid points there. API Proxy isnt a silver bullet for it

    I have an application façade which is in AppFabric azure where it exposes WCF services and act/behave as Biztalk, validating messages and applying business rules, Old architecure, 4 years ago. Customer requested me to find a better integration solution I am thinking of switching the architecture to SB relays and Wabs, the question is from performance perspective, can we have similar performance and latency as the WCF resdinig in AppFabric
    My idea is to minimize writing WCF code lines

      SB Relay performs well but im not convinced M(W)ABS EAI Bridges is a good place to go at the moment, there are challenges around the ALM aspects and Microsoft seems to be investing in the new Microservices platform and im not sure there is much will happen with EAI bridges until they are superseeded by the new integration microservices which i think will not be like for like

        Thanks Mike, I understood that Microservices are schedueled for emd of March as Preview release

        • michael stephenson

          its not publically announced yet but we will have some stuff on int monday when it is in preview

      • Daniel Toomey

        MABS EDI story is better than EAI story, but still suffering from poor tracking solution/API.

    There is a new site with Road Map information for Microsoft Cloud which people should keep an eye on – http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/server-cloud/roadmap/recently-available.aspx?TabIndex=4

    • Salam Elias

      Mike, I don’t see any hint in the roadmap for microservices
