CloudAMQP vs RSMQ: What are the differences?

CloudAMQP: RabbitMQ as a Service. Fully managed, highly available RabbitMQ servers and clusters, on all major compute platforms; RSMQ: A lightweight message queue for Node.js that requires no dedicated queue server. Just a Redis server. tl;dr: If you run a Redis server and currently use Amazon SQS or a similar message queue you might as well use this fast little replacement. Using a shared Redis server multiple Node.js processes can send / receive messages.

CloudAMQP and RSMQ can be primarily classified as "Message Queue" tools.

Some of the features offered by CloudAMQP are:

  • Support - 24/7 support, via email, chat and phone.
  • Real time metrics and alarms - Get notified in advanced when your queues are growing faster than you're consuming them, when you're servers are over loaded etc. and take action before it becomes a problem.
  • Auto-healing - Our monitoring systems automatically detects and fixes a lot of problems such as kernel bugs, auto-restarts, RabbitMQ/Erlang version upgrades etc.

On the other hand, RSMQ provides the following key features:

  • Lightweight: Just Redis and ~500 lines of javascript.
  • Guaranteed delivery of a message to exactly one recipient within a messages visibility timeout.
  • Received messages that are not deleted will reappear after the visibility timeout.

RSMQ is an open source tool with 1.07K GitHub stars and 78 GitHub forks. Here's a link to RSMQ's open source repository on GitHub.

Decisions about CloudAMQP and RSMQ

In addition to being a lot cheaper, Google Cloud Pub/Sub allowed us to not worry about maintaining any more infrastructure that needed.

We moved from a self-hosted RabbitMQ over to CloudAMQP and decided that since we use GCP anyway, why not try their managed PubSub?

It is one of the better decisions that we made, and we can just focus about building more important stuff!
