VMware RabbitMQ Review

We used it to implement a three-tier structure and to decouple our front end from the back end.

What is most valuable?

Some valuable features of this product are:

  • Message queuing
  • Good support
  • Provided scalability and a distributed environment
  • Easy usability with NodeJS
  • Could easily withstand and pass stress/load testing with more than 10K API calls
  • Helped achieve a distributed environment and implement a 3-tier structure
  • Helped to develop a highly scalable system by decoupling front end and back end

How has it helped my organization?

We had a project where we had huge responses to APIs from the front-end and had to handle such large responses/requests without losing any of them. RabbitMQ efficiently handled this problem by providing message queuing and decoupling our front end and back end.

What needs improvement?

I would love to see better documentation/demo for few technologies. There is need for better stability in the Windows environment.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have used this product for around six months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We encountered a few problems with Windows while clustering and hence we used Linux.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We did not encounter any scalability issues.

How is customer service and technical support?

I would give the technical support a 7/10 rating.

How was the initial setup?

It involved more of research as how to use RabbitMQ. For clustering, it was little bit complex but I was able to follow the documentation provided.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not evaluate any other solution prior to this one.

What other advice do I have?

It gives product support with your technology.
