RabbitMQ Review
It provides load balancing using queues, guaranteed messaging, and queue mirroring.

Valuable Features:

  • Load balancing through queues
  • Guaranteed messaging
  • Configurable pre-fetch count
  • Queue mirroring

Improvements to My Organization:

RabbitMQ helped us build a database synchronization framework that allowed us to transfer our clients data to our cloud based data processing centers.

Room for Improvement:

The web management tool.

Use of Solution:

I have used this solution since 2013.

Stability Issues:

We had several de-clustering problems.

Scalability Issues:

We did not have any scalability problems.

Technical Support:

I have never used support.

Previous Solutions:

This is the first solution we implemented.

Initial Setup:

It was a very simple setup. We had some issues with the home folder being on a non-standard system drive (The location of the RMQ cookie was changed.)

Cost and Licensing Advice:

The Community Edition works fine for us.

Other Solutions Considered:

We evaluated several other solutions; the MQSeries and MSMQ.

Other Advice:

Use it for implementations that require a queuing solution. It is easy to overuse it as a universal communication bus of the entire system.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
