VMware RabbitMQ Review

It allows developers to focus on application functionality without having to re-invent interprocess communication.


What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is it’s robustness. Message queues need to be extremely reliable as they are the glue between system components.

Also, the speed is important and its good scaling capabilities.

How has it helped my organization?

It allows developers to focus on application functionality without having to re-invent interprocess communication, which is difficult.

I also allows us to develop smaller, more efficient, and less complex subcomponents of a larger application.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see better documentation on how to set up complex webs of RabbitMQ servers — master/slave, multi-master, etc.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using RabbitMQ for 7+ years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have not encountered any stability issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have not encountered any scalability issues.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We were using IBM MQ, but it was too costly and not open source.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was simple for my applications, but I have not used RabbitMQ on a complex project that would require clusters of servers.

What other advice do I have?

My advice is to read the message boards and play with the API.
