      What are some alternatives to ActiveMQ, Gearman, and IronMQ?
      RabbitMQ
      RabbitMQ gives your applications a common platform to send and receive messages, and your messages a safe place to live until received.
      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.
      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.

      I deploy to Heroku. However, my applications require full linux applications that cannot be deployed to Heroku. I deploy them to Rackspace.

      Then Heroku and Rackspace communicate over IronMQ. Problem solved.
