Overview of Azure Event Grid – Fully-managed Event Routing Service Blog

Microsoft Azure supports many business communication technologies, including Service Bus, Event Hubs and Event Grids. Azure Event Grid makes it easy to create event-driven, serverless apps that can address real-time business issues by focusing on core logic and not the infrastructure. Microsoft Azure Event Grid: Fully managed Event Routing Service is designed for high availability, consistent performance and dynamic scaling.
Let’s learn more about Azure Event Grid: Fully managed Event Routing Service to understand this domain!
What is Azure Event Grid?
Azure Event Grid is a fully-featured event routing system that runs on top Azure Service Fabric. Event Grid routes events from multiple services such as Azure Storage Blobs to different handlers such as Azure Functions. Azure Event Grid is designed to make it easier for developers to create event-based and serverless Azure apps. Azure Event Grid can be used by third party services and provides almost all Azure services as a subscriber or publisher. It provides a low-cost, dynamically scalable communication system that allows publishers and subscribers to notify subscribers about status changes. Azure Event Grid offers several options to connect a source and subscriber.
Azure Event Grid: Uses
Azure Event Grid has some great reasons to be used.
Simplify event delivery
Eliminate polling and the associated costs and delays. Event Grid uses a pub/sub approach to event delivery and simple HTTP-based event publishing. This allows you to create scalable, serverless, microservices and distributed systems.
Cloud applications that are reliable
You can gain large scale quickly and receive near-real-time notifications about developments that are of interest to you. You can create better, more reliable apps by leveraging the cloud’s high availability and assured event delivery.
Focus on product innovation
You can create richer applications by linking multiple event sources and destinations. You can activate your business logic using almost all Azure services as well as bespoke resources. Fully managed event handling, including delivery and sophisticated filtering, allows you to send events to multiple recipients at once, allowing you to concentrate on your business challenges, rather than infrastructure.
Streamline event-driven integration
Event Grid’s event driven designs make it easy to integrate workloads hosted on the cloud or Kubernetes. You can manage Event Grid resources in Azure or Kubernetes using a single control plane. You can use hybrid architectures to route events between Kubernetes and Azure destinations.
Enterprise integration
Azure Event Grid could be a valuable asset in an Enterprise Integration environment. Azure Event Grid provides reliable messaging with retries, dead letters, and ensures that messages are not lost. The integrated solution is highly scalable and can generate events at a high rate. Customers can be certain that the integrated solution will keep up with their systems. For this scenario, let’s say that Dynamics generates messages and queues them up in a Service Bus queue. Next, you can trigger the queue using Azure Event Grid and create a subscription which launches a Logic App. The Logic App will then retrieve all messages from the queue, and update the SAP entities.

Azure Event Grid is a simple alerting and notification system. It has the following characteristics:
Dynamically scaleable
Messaging features like At the very minimum once Lettering that has been lost Retry mechanism are a part.
Capabilities to send advanced messages
Filtering and routing Because it uses a push mechanism, there’s no need to poll for long periods of time.
Integrates with many Azure services right out of the box, both event sources and event handlers.
