VMware RabbitMQ Review

Has a very useful management console but difficult to integrate with automated test and CICD

What is our primary use case?

  • Transaction processing between microservices
  • Message queue integration with Spring and RPC over Rabbit.

How has it helped my organization?

  • Quick and simple to implement
  • Easy to build proof-of-concept modules based on working examples from Pivotal.

What is most valuable?

  • Out-of-the-box setup and configuration
  • Great documentation and support from Pivotal
  • Very useful management console

What needs improvement?

  • Difficult to integrate with automated test and CICD 
  • Moving beyond basic configurations can be challenging
  • Not clear how to implement durable subscriber connections
  • Not clear how a Rabbit service restart allows subscriber auto re-connect
  • Service cluster failover depends on shared disk infrastructure.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.
