Remarks

Use this Node to support asynchronous Workflow patterns. Typically one Workflow will be responsible for accumulating tasks by receiving them from a consumer and loading them on to a queue. A second Workflow will then be responsible for de-queuing these tasks in order to process them asynchronously.

This Node leverages the Azure Storage SDK and includes automatic retry.
