VMware RabbitMQ Review

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

What is most valuable?

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

How has it helped 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.

What needs improvement?

The web management tool.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have used this solution since 2013.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We had several de-clustering problems.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We did not have any scalability problems.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have never used support.

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

This is the first solution we implemented.

How was the 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.)

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

The Community Edition works fine for us.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated several other solutions; the MQSeries and MSMQ.

What other advice do I have?

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