What is ActiveMQ?

Apache ActiveMQ is fast, supports many Cross Language Clients and Protocols, comes with easy to use Enterprise Integration Patterns and many advanced features while fully supporting JMS 1.1 and J2EE 1.4. Apache ActiveMQ is released under the Apache 2.0 License.

What is Celery?

Celery is an asynchronous task queue/job queue based on distributed message passing. It is focused on real-time operation, but supports scheduling as well.

What is RabbitMQ?

RabbitMQ gives your applications a common platform to send and receive messages, and your messages a safe place to live until received.

    What are some alternatives to ActiveMQ, Celery, and RabbitMQ?
    Kafka
    Kafka is a distributed, partitioned, replicated commit log service. It provides the functionality of a messaging system, but with a unique design.
    Apollo
    Build a universal GraphQL API on top of your existing REST APIs, so you can ship new application features fast without waiting on backend changes.
    Amazon SQS
    Transmit any volume of data, at any level of throughput, without losing messages or requiring other services to be always available. With SQS, you can offload the administrative burden of operating and scaling a highly available messaging cluster, while paying a low price for only what you use.
    ZeroMQ
    The 0MQ lightweight messaging kernel is a library which extends the standard socket interfaces with features traditionally provided by specialised messaging middleware products. 0MQ sockets provide an abstraction of asynchronous message queues, multiple messaging patterns, message filtering (subscriptions), seamless access to multiple transport protocols and more.
    NSQ
    NSQ is a realtime distributed messaging platform designed to operate at scale, handling billions of messages per day. It promotes distributed and decentralized topologies without single points of failure, enabling fault tolerance and high availability coupled with a reliable message delivery guarantee.

          Review ofRabbitMQRabbitMQ

          I developed one of the largest queue based medical results delivery systems in the world, 18,000+ queues and still growing over a decade later all using MQSeries, later called Websphere MQ. When I left that company I started using RabbitMQ after doing some research on free offerings.. it works brilliantly and is incredibly flexible from small scale single instance use to large scale multi-server - multi-site architectures.

          If you can think in queues then RabbitMQ should be a viable solution for integrating disparate systems.

          All of our background jobs (e.g., image resizing, file uploading, email and SMS sending) are done through Celery (using Redis as its broker). Celery's scheduling and retrying features are especially useful for error-prone tasks, such as email and SMS sending.

          For orchestrating the creation of the correct number of instances, managing errors and retries, and finally managing the deallocation of resources we use RabbitMQ in conjunction with the Celery Project framework, along with a self-developed workflow engine.

          We maintain a fork of Celery 3 that adds HTTPS support for Redis brokers. The Winning Model currently uses Celery 3 because Celery 4 dropped support for Windows.

          We plan on migrating to Celery 4 once Azure ASE supports Linux apps

          The poster child for scalable messaging systems, RabbitMQ has been used in countless large scale systems as the messaging backbone of any large cluster, and has proven itself time and again in many production settings.

          Rabbit acts as our coordinator for all actions that happen during game time. All worker containers connect to rabbit in order to receive game events and emit their own events when applicable.

          Used as central Message Broker; off-loading tasks to be executed asynchronous, used as communication tool between different microservices, used as tool to handle peaks in incoming data, etc.

          RabbitMQ is the enterprise message bus for our platform, providing infrastructure for managing our ETL queues, real-time event notifications for applications, and audit logging.

          RabbitMQ is an all purpose queuing service for our stack. We use it for user facing jobs as well as keeping track of behind the scenes jobs.

          We used celery, in combination with RabbitMQ and celery-beat, to run periodic tasks, as well as some user-initiated long-running tasks on the server.

          Using Celery, the web service creates tasks that are executed by a background worker. Celery uses a RabbitMQ instance as a task queue.
