IBM MQ Review

Secure, fast, and easy to work with

What is most valuable?

  • Secure
  • Safe
  • Very fast

It's a very good product. Very easy to work with.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using IBM MQ for about nine years. We have many projects with it in many places in Kuwait.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

There have been no issues with the stability of the solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I haven't had any issues with the scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?

I only contacted technical support when I wanted to upgrade Windows Server. It's not that easy to move. I had Windows 2008, and I wanted to go to Windows 2012 or '16. You have to reinstall, or there was a solution somebody told me about and that made life easier.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward. On the AS/400, setup takes about an hour.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Whatever the price is, it's worth it.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend it to other people. When somebody wants to do colocation with us, we force them to buy IBM MQ.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
