Beneficial features, simple install, highly scalable, and simple "pub/sub" model.

What is our primary use case?

We use the solution on our SaaS platform to speedup and simplify customer access across services.

Pros and Cons

  • "Some of the most valuable features are publish and subscribe, fanout, and queues."
  • "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."

What other advice do I have?

There are many different use cases for each technology, as well as many approaches. So have the architecture team graph and document every solution. Have a few training days to clarify the goal, the solution and the implementation. One of the things we do in our training is to actually create prototypes, the abstract model of our ideal state. This demonstrates exactly what we all need to do. Developers understand more quickly with a model. It flattens their learning curve and they are more productive more quickly. I rate VMware RabbitMQ a ten out of ten.

Has the ability to utilize plugins to view the performance of the whole service on one network

What is our primary use case?

I primarily use the solution for research purposes. I've utilized it for my academic studies for comparing HTTPS protocols. RabbitMQ supported the protocols I needed and I've read also that it's one of the most commonly used broker services.

Pros and Cons

  • "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."
  • "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."

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 the Nico services platform. I've done my research and have discovered it's two times faster and more commonly used. It's also really easy to use on the Nico services platform because all of the components are in the cloud. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

Customizable and stable, but it is difficult to use for complex tasks

What is our primary use case?

We use RabbitMQ for tasks that need to communicate in real-time. I have used it as a microservices message broker.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is that it's really customizable."
  • "When you have complex tasks, RabbitMQ is hard to use."

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is implementing this product is to learn the concept of message queuing and study the AMQP 0-9-1 protocol. If you study this then you won't have any problem learning the system and working with it. In summary, this is a good product that I will continue to use, and I recommend it. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Fairly secured, quite robust, and stable but their support is lacking

Pros and Cons

  • "The security is great."
  • "Their implementation is quite tricky. It's not that easy to implement RabbitMQ as a cluster."

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.
