Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"My impression is that it is average in terms of scalability.""This combination of two products, Apache Kafka and ActiveMQ, offers two ways of dealing with messaging. It's wonderful due to the fact that sometimes it's much preferable to use Kafka and sometimes it's Active MQ. We can use both of them in our arsenal.""The solution is very lightweight, easy to configure, simple to manage, and robust since it launched."

"The solution has really cool features to use. Its management console is excellent. You can utilize plugins to view the performance of the whole service on one network.""The security is great.""The most valuable feature is that it's really customizable.""Some of the most valuable features are publish and subscribe, fanout, and queues."

Cons
"There are several areas in this solution that need improvement, including clustering multi-nodes and message ordering.""AMQ is not offered as a separate offering anymore. It comes only as a part of the Red Hat Integration package. Therefore, if you would like to purchase a specific product, you can't do that.""There is improvement needed to keep the support libraries updated."

"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.""Their implementation is quite tricky. It's not that easy to implement RabbitMQ as a cluster.""When you have complex tasks, RabbitMQ is hard to use.""They should improve on the ability to scale your queues in a very simple and elegant way with the same power that they have would be great."
