Azure Content Spotlight - Azure Relays
With the announcement Azure Relay Hybrid Connections is generally available, this week's content spotlight highlights Azure Relay. Azure Relay allows for the secure exposure of on-premises services to the cloud without requiring firewall or network changes. WCF Relay has been available for some time and Hybrid Connections is built upon a common gateway but provides greater acceptance by using open standard WebSockets instead of proprietary WCF.
It is worth noting that Hybrid Connections replaces BizTalk Services.
