Iron.io continues to grow its ecosystem of value-added partners. To this point, today you can now find Iron.io solutions in the Application Services within the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. Azure users can now directly leverage Iron.io within their applications to respond to application events, decouple components as independent services, offload individual workloads, and schedule regular occurring jobs.
IronWorker and IronMQ can be added by visiting the Azure Marketplace. Developers can then write and package task code for deployment to IronWorker’s processing environment within Azure. The Iron.io dashboard built into Azure provides detailed insight into the state of tasks for monitoring complete application activity and performance.
By using Azure and Iron.io, developers and operators can move individual components to the cloud, while maintaining safe application environments through improved security. Iron.io can also act as a key processing gateway to Azure component services including storage, queues, mobile services, and more, making it easy to create hybrid solutions of existing client-server applications and cloud-based microservices.
To quote Iron.io CEO Chad Arimura: “The combination of Azure and Iron.io brings flexibility, scalability, control and security – all the things Enterprises are seeking for their applications.
IronWorker and IronMQ are currently available in the West US region of Azure, and support multiple languages with native SDKs including Go, Java, Ruby, PHP, Python, Node.js, and .NET.
