Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"ActiveMQ is very lightweight and quick."

More ActiveMQ Pros →

"Messaging and queueing solution that has good stability and scalability. It can be used for a variety of messaging types.""It's easy to use and comes as a bundle package with the Anypoint Platform, removing the need for any complex setup.""Initial setup was very straightforward. Deployment is a cakewalk."

More Anypoint MQ Pros →

Cons
"From the TPS point of view, it's like 100,000 transactions that need to be admitted from different devices and also from the different minor small systems. Those are best fit for Kafka. We have used it on the customer side, and we thought of giving a try to ActiveMQ, but we have to do a lot of performance tests and approval is required before we can use it for this scale."

More ActiveMQ Cons →

"It's extremely expensive to change things in Anypoint MQ. There's also this issue of slow output of messages, and that needs to be improved.""Anypoint MQ's capabilities are mainly used for messaging purposes, but it doesn't have typical use cases that extend as far as other Message Queue software.""There are so many solutions like this, but this is not as mature as those products. The other MQ products have the capability of reprocessing and maintaining the persistence of the data. They can handle large volumes and large messages, but Anypoint MQ doesn't have those capabilities."

  • "I can't give you a straightforward answer because sometimes it depends on the usage. If you're going to have fewer than 5 million messages, it is free of cost. If you're going to have more than 5 million messages, they're going to charge $100 per month"
  • "Making changes in Anypoint MQ is expensive."
