Azure Queue Storage is a Microsoft Azure cloud service that enables you to store vast numbers of messages for processing. You can take advantage of authenticated HTTP or HTTPS calls to access messages from anywhere in the globe in a secure manner. The maximum size of a queue message is 64 KB. A queue in Azure Queue Storage can store huge numbers of messages, up to a maximum storage capacity of 200 TB.

Like your other Azure Storage data objects, including blobs, files, and tables, your queues are stored in your Azure Storage account. The Azure Storage account gives you a distinct namespace for your Azure Storage data, which you can access over HTTP or HTTPS from anywhere on the world.

Azure Storage Queue used for?

Azure Storage Queue, primarily helps in the assured delivery of system messages between and within applications. Queues can be used to offload background and non-interactive workloads that ultimately help with scaling applications and in managing sudden traffic bursts. Azure Storage Queue enables storing messages until the system is available to process queues further.

Azure Queue storage, allows application components to communicate with each other by decoupling system components. These components can communicate in the cloud, on the desktop, on-premises, or on mobile devices without depending on each other. If a component crashes, Azure Storage Queue can buffer requests until it is back up and able to process requests again. Azure Storage provides a number of client libraries that interact with Azure Storage to provide support for application component failures. A single queue message can be up to 64 KB in size, and a queue can contain millions of messages, up to the total capacity limit of a storage account.
