The Service Bus provides the communication infrastructure that protects developers from having to create the complex code necessary to achieve seamless connectivity. It allows you to expose a service to the Internet from behind your firewall or NAT. Several common application messaging patterns are supported allowing bi-directional, peer-to-peer communication, publish and subscribe and storing and forwarding of messages. The Service Bus is built on Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) and uses standard Internet protocols. Building applications using the Service Bus does not require a significant footprint within an organization and leads to more rapid deployments while keeping the local infrastructure intact.
