ActiveMQ vs CloudAMQP: What are the differences?
Developers describe ActiveMQ as "A message broker written in Java together with a full JMS client". 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. On the other hand, CloudAMQP is detailed as "RabbitMQ as a Service". Fully managed, highly available RabbitMQ servers and clusters, on all major compute platforms.
ActiveMQ and CloudAMQP can be primarily classified as "Message Queue" tools.
"Open source" is the top reason why over 9 developers like ActiveMQ, while over 3 developers mention "Some of the best customer support you'll ever find" as the leading cause for choosing CloudAMQP.
ActiveMQ is an open source tool with 1.5K GitHub stars and 1.05K GitHub forks. Here's a link to ActiveMQ's open source repository on GitHub.
Intuit, SoFi, and Bench are some of the popular companies that use ActiveMQ, whereas CloudAMQP is used by Travis CI, Guaana, and Apartment List. ActiveMQ has a broader approval, being mentioned in 33 company stacks & 17 developers stacks; compared to CloudAMQP, which is listed in 12 company stacks and 5 developer stacks.
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!
