One of the many advantages of running applications on the cloud is the easy availability of a variety of backing services. Steeltoe simplifies using those services by automatically configuring and wiring up connections to common services like Redis, RabbitMQ, MySQL, MS SQL, and more.
Backing services are must when creating cloud-native .NET applications, but managing the connections can be time consuming and annoying. Steeltoe Service Connectors takes that pain away and let you get back to doing what you love.
Why use Service Connectors?
Steeltoe Connectors provide out-of-the-box support for discovering many common services on a cloud platform. They also include the ability to use settings-based configuration so that developers can supply configuration settings at development and testing time but then have those settings be overridden when pushing the application to the platform.
Discover and connect to databases such as Microsoft SQL, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and MongoDB.
Cache and Messaging connectors
Discover and connect to Redis or GemFire/Apache Geode cache. Also easily interact with a RabbitMQ service instance.
OAuth2 service client
Automatically get OAuth2 service instance configuration data injected into your ASP.NET application.
