ActiveMQ vs Redis: What are the differences?
What is ActiveMQ? 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.
What is Redis? An in-memory database that persists on disk. Redis is an open source, BSD licensed, advanced key-value store. It is often referred to as a data structure server since keys can contain strings, hashes, lists, sets and sorted sets.
ActiveMQ and Redis are primarily classified as "Message Queue" and "In-Memory Databases" tools respectively.
"Open source" is the primary reason why developers consider ActiveMQ over the competitors, whereas "Performance" was stated as the key factor in picking Redis.
