Azure Event Grid generally available
Easily subscribe and react to interesting events happening in any Azure service or in your own apps with Azure Event Grid, a fully managed event routing service. Event Grid removes the need to continuously poll by reliably routing events at high scale and low latency. In addition, take advantage of the rich coverage and reactive event model enabled by Event Grid in your serverless architectures. These features were added as part of the general availability (GA) release:
|✓||Richer scenarios enabled through integration with more services: Azure Storage General Purpose v2 accounts were added; Azure IoT Hub and Azure Service Bus were added as new event publishers; and Azure Event Hubs was added as a new destination for events.|
|✓||Availability in more regions: It’s now available in the following regions: West US, East US, West US 2, East US 2, West Central US, Central US, West Europe, North Europe, Southeast Asia, and East Asia, with more coming soon.|
|✓||Increased reliability and service-level agreement (SLA): We now have a 24-hour retry policy with exponential back off for event delivery. We also offer 99.99 percent availability with a financially backed SLA for your production workloads.|
|✓||Better developer productivity: New management and data plane SDKs help make the development process smoother.|
Event Grid is now generally available. GA pricing will be effective for billing periods beginning on or after April 1, 2018. Learn more on the overview and pricing webpages or via the Azure Blog.
