Service Platform benefits

The Service Platform delivers a dependable messaging solutions infrastructure through multiple reliability layers and features:

Reliable transports A selection of reliable transports providing multiple options for transactional store-and-forward and broker pattern messaging (MSMQ, SQL Server transports and more).
See connection string samples

Exception handling Built-in exception handling logic surrounds all calls to user code. When an exception occurs, NServiceBus rolls back the database transaction and also returns the message to the queue, also undoing any messages requested to be sent or published.
How to handle exceptions

Automated Retries Automated retry built-in, configurable and highly efficient. Immediate Retries (fast retries within the transaction) and Delayed Retries (cascading delays, for 10, 20 and 30 seconds) provide an out-of-the-box way to overcome intermittent connection and availability issues. More about Retries

Reliable storage Reliable storage for failing and failed messages. Persistent storage with transactional support using Error and Retries queues, reliably stores any message that is undergoing retries or, after automated retry actions have been exhausted, stores the message in a persistent Error queue.

Failure Notifications Message failure notification and alerting via Production Monitoring. Near real-time indication and alerting when messages fail processing, including full message details, failure stacktrace, message context interaction visualization and more. More about failed messages

Reliable DevOps Tooling After identifying and fixing root cause of processing failure, Ops and DevOps personnel can send a message to be re-processed with easy to use tools. Intro to Endpoints and Heartbeats

Failure Detection Endpoint failure detection and alerting via production monitoring. Endpoint heartbeat monitoring and alerting enables you to identify when an endpoint is not able to send message or communicate, raising indicator alerts and notifications.

Custom Checks Define and check custom conditions that your solution depends upon, and monitor and alert when these conditions are not met using the integrated Custom Checks feature supported by NServiceBus endpoints and Particular Software production monitoring tools. How to develop custom checks


After our developers made the mental leap to concepts like eventual consistency, we started feeling the most significant benefits of NServiceBus: the ability to extend functionality around existing systems without having to change their internal behavior as well as being able to break apart previously monolithic applications. We found that NServiceBus absolutely lives up to its reputation of reliability in production. All in all, it’s been quite a pleasure working with NServiceBus.

Conduit uses NServiceBus for messaging between the systems that serve their 200 million+ users and running millions of installation processes every day.
NServiceBus was embedded in several conduit subsystems. The framework proved itself as a reliable and robust infrastructure for our runtime load-intensive production distributed environment. NServiceBus is straightforward to use, easy to configure, adapts for specific needs and contains great features (Saga, Distributer and more) that are very useful and powerful.
