What is most valuable?

RabbitMQ is a solid, widely-used messaging system with a low cost-of-ownership. It is open, but with commercial support potentially available from Pivotal if required. (We… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We have been able to set up a messaging system that facilitates data integration between the software modules that we sell. RabbitMQ allowed us to do this quickly so that… more»

What needs improvement?

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. The documentation for the… more»

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

This is an open source solution.

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

No previous solution was used.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend that anyone who intends to deploy RabbitMQ on Windows should first consider whether a Linux implementation is a viable option for their situation.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked at MSMQ, NServiceBus, Azure Service Bus, and Apache Kafka.

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 needs improvement?

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. It's pretty straightforward, the setup, but it would be useful to know what to do if you do face certain challenges. Right… more»

What other advice do I have?

I'm only really using the solution for the purposes of research. I've just installed and am working on the latest version. My interest in the solution is purely academic, so I can't speak to how it would function within an organization. I'd definitely recommend the solution, especially over HTTP in… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I was considering using ActiveMQ on AWS, but after some research, I decided RabbitMO was a more complex solution and one that is more commonly used, so I chose RabbitMQ over it.

What is most valuable?

The security is great. The interface is nothing special. The support hasn't been that great. You need to go online yourself, to the developer community for support. But apart from that, I think it's fairly secured, quite robust, and stable so far.

What needs improvement?

Their implementation is quite tricky. It's not that easy to implement RabbitMQ as a cluster. It would be great if they could improve that.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend it, but I think there should be a proof of concept for the developer team to get their hands around it and have full control of it before they go into production. I would rate RabbitMQ a seven out of ten. In the next release, I would like for them to improve the UI.

What is most valuable?

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

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 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.
