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.

Customer Service and 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.)

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

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.
