What is most valuable?

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. It's wonderful. I really like it.

What other advice do I have?

I have also had experience with IBM MQ for the last 30 years. I am comparing between different products and messaging scenario expertise. I work in consultancies with many clients who have many different versions. All messaging whether it's ActiveMQ, Amazon MQ which is Active MQ, or it's IBM MQ, they are all very similar, they all have strengths and weaknesses. We have clients from small to large… more »
