BizTalk Server 2016 has launched!
The official Microsoft blog post is here.
You can find a list of what’s new here.
There is a lot of good stuff in this new release. If I had to pick my two favorites, I would say the Logic App adapter and the support for SQL Server 2016 AlwaysOn Availability Groups (which means we can now do high availability BizTalk on Azure IaaS).
Chronologically, BizTalk Server has now been around for 16 years, and with Microsoft’s 10 year support policy BizTalk Server 2016 will be supported until (at least) 2026. I believe this makes it one of Microsoft’s longest-lived products, and for good reasons.
