It's the week when Windows 8 makes its official debut, but other Windows products are also continuing to advance. A new add-on for Windows Server allows you to access the Azure Service Bus, making it easier to develop applications requiring complex enterprise messaging services.
Service Bus 1.0 for Windows Server is a free download for Windows Server users. It replicates the architecture used in the existing Azure Service Bus, meaning applications can utilise both local resources and Azure capacity in the same fashion. Hit the link to download and try it for yourself (you can always grab a trial copy of Windows Server 2012 if you haven't got a test server handy).
