"It is easy to use. The addition of more queues and more services can be managed very easily.""Companies can scale the solution, so long as they have server room.""The solution can scale.""The most valuable feature for me is that it is open source. The licensing costs are really low and they are transparent.""It can be configured to be a very fast message broker. I like the stability, the built-in admin tools and plugin architecture."

More VMware RabbitMQ Pros →

"The initial setup of Amazon SQS is in the middle range of difficulty. You need to learn Amazon AWS and know how to navigate, create resources, and structures, and provide rules.""As a company that uses IBM solutions, it's difficult to compare Amazon SQS to other solutions. We have been using IBM solutions for a long time and they are very mature in integration and queuing. In my role as an integration manager, I can say that Amazon SQS is designed primarily for use within the Amazon ecosystem and does not have the same level of functionality as IBM MQ or other similar products. It has limited connectivity options and does not easily integrate with legacy systems.""It would be easier to have a dashboard that allows us to see everything and manage everything since we have so many queues.""Be cautious around pay-as-you-use licensing as costs can become expensive.""The solution is not available on-premises so that rules out any customers looking for the messaging solution on-premises."

More Amazon SQS Cons →

"If you're outside IP address range, the clustering no longer has all the features which is problematic.""I would like to see the performance of the administration portal improved and additional messaging protocols.""The user interface could be improved.""The availability could be better.""There are some security concerns that have been raised with this product."

    Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS) is a fully managed message queuing service that enables you to decouple and scale microservices, distributed systems, and serverless applications. SQS eliminates the complexity and overhead associated with managing and operating message oriented middleware, and empowers developers to focus on differentiating work. Using SQS, you can send, store, and receive messages between software components at any volume, without losing messages or requiring other services to be available. Get started with SQS in minutes using the AWS console, Command Line Interface or SDK of your choice, and three simple commands.

    SQS offers two types of message queues. Standard queues offer maximum throughput, best-effort ordering, and at-least-once delivery. SQS FIFO queues are designed to guarantee that messages are processed exactly once, in the exact order that they are sent.

    RabbitMQ is the most popular open source message broker, with more than 35,000 production deployments world-wide. RabbitMQ is lightweight and easy to deploy on premises and in the cloud and runs on all major operating systems. It supports most developer platforms, multiple messaging protocols and can be deployed in distributed and federated configurations to meet high-scale, high-availability requirements.
