A BizTalk Host is a set of running engines—BizTalk Message Queuing (MSMQT), XLANG, and Tracking Data Decode Service (TDDS)—that communicate with the MessageBox database. A BizTalk Host is a logical set of zero or more BizTalk runtime processes in which you deploy items such as adapter handlers, receive locations (including pipelines), and orchestrations. BizTalk Host provides a container for items such as adapter handlers, receive locations (including pipelines), and orchestrations. Hosts have the following characteristics:

  • Hosts are the logical containers of BizTalk objects
  • Only one instance of a specific host can exist on each server
  • You can map one host to multiple servers
