Microsoft Azure, commonly referred to as Azure (/ˈæʒər/), is a cloud computing service created by Microsoft for building, testing, deploying, and managing applications and services through Microsoft-managed data centers. It provides software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS) and infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and supports many different programming languages, tools, and frameworks, including both Microsoft-specific and third-party software and systems.
Hop supports Azure through a number of metadata types:
Azure Event Hubs Listener: listens indefinitely to an Event Hub on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform.
Azure Event Hubs Writer: allows you to write messages (events) to a streaming service bus called Event Hubs on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform.
