We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
Going from something where we had outages and capacity issues constantly to a system that was able to scale with the massive market data and messaging spikes that happened during the initial stages of the COVID crisis in March, we were able to scale with 40 plus percent growth in our platform over the course of days.When we went to add another installation in our private cloud, it was easy. We received support from Solace and the install was seamless with no issues.In my assessment of Solace against other products — as I was responsible for evaluating various products and bringing the right tool into companies in the past — I worked with multiple platforms like RabbitMQ, Confluent, Kafka, and various other tools in the market. But I found the event mesh capability to be a very interesting as well as fulfilling capability, towards what we want to achieve from a digital-integration-strategy point of view... It's distributed, yet it is intelligently connected. It can also span and I can plug and play any number of brokers into the event mesh, so it's a great deal. That's a differentiator.The topic hierarchy is pretty flexible. Once you have the subject defined just about anybody who knows Java can come onboard. The APIs are all there.

Cons
Some of the feature's gaps with some of the open-source vendors have been closed in a lot of ways. Being more agile and addressing those earlier could be an area for improvement.We have requested to be able to get into the payload to do dynamic topic hierarchy building. A current workaround is using the message's header, where the business data can be put into this header and be used for a dynamic topic lookup. I want to see this in action when there are a couple of hundred cases live. E.g., how does it perform? From an administration perspective, is the ease of use there?A challenge we currently have is Solace's ability to integrate with single sign-on in our Active Directory and other single sign-on tools and platforms that any company would have. It's important for the platforms to work. Typically, they support only LDAP-based connectivity to our SQL Servers.The product should allow third-party agents to be installed. Currently, it is quite proprietary.

Their implementation is quite tricky. It's not that easy to implement RabbitMQ as a cluster.I was struggling with installing a few things. It would be good if was somewhat similar to RedHat. There should be more documentation regarding installation troubleshooting.RabbitMQ is clearly better supported on Linux than it is on Windows. There are idiosyncrasies in the Windows version that are not there on Linux.

Pricing and Cost Advice
We are looking for something that will add value and fit for purpose. Freeware is good if you want to try something quickly without putting in much money. However, as far as our decision is concerned, I don't think it helps. At the end of the day, if we are convinced that a capability is required, we will ask for the funding. Then, when the funding is available, we will go for an enterprise solution only.The licensing is dependent on the volume that is flowing. If you go for their support services, it will cost some more money, but I think it is worth it, especially if you are just starting your journey.There are different tiers where you can choose what would work for you. As a customer, you need to know roughly how many messages a month you will use.

Overview

PubSub+ is a complete event streaming and management platform for the real-time enterprise.
PubSub+ helps enterprises design, deploy and manage event-driven architectures across hybrid cloud, multi-cloud and IoT environments, so they can be more integrated and event-driven.

The "+" in PubSub+ means it supports a wide range of message exchange patterns beyond publish/subscribe, including request/reply, streaming and replay, as well as different qualities of service, such as best effort and guaranteed delivery. It's available as an appliance, software, and as-a-service. All options offer the same functionality and management experience.

PubSub+ lets users connect event brokers to form an event mesh - an architectural layer that supports dynamically routing events from one application to any other application no matter where those applications are deployed (no cloud, private cloud, public cloud) - so users can connect and orchestrate microservices, push events from on-premesis systems of record to cloud services, and enable digital transformation across LoBs and IoT.

Its APIs supports popular programming languages, with open APIs and protocols to connect to any application, providing a best-in-class approach to messaging to never get locked in to any technology — including the vendor's own.

  • RabbitMQ is the most popular open source message broker, with more than 35,000 production deployments world-wide. RabbitMQ is lightweight and easy to deploy on premises and in the cloud and runs on all major operating systems. It supports most developer platforms, multiple messaging protocols and can be deployed in distributed and federated configurations to meet high-scale, high-availability requirements.
