Azure Service Bus outage

Yesterday we suffered an outage of Azure Service Bus that caused many issues on our system. Some system lost synchronization and we also failed to place commands in queues from user requests, so it directly affected user experience and sales.

I’ve done some research of potential mitigations with Azure Service Bus, but before digging more into it I would like to ask if NServiceBus or its ASB transport has anything build in about this (support fallback namespace, etc).



Hi Francesc,

I presume you’re referring to the partial failure in West US?

Azure Service Bus transport does support utilization of multiple namespaces using Namespace Partitioning feature.
One of the strategies, FailOverNamespacePartitioning, provides support for failover.

Ah, this is very interesting information. We’ll definitely look into using this feature.
