Beanstalkd vs ZeroMQ: What are the differences?

Beanstalkd: A simple, fast work queue. Beanstalks's interface is generic, but was originally designed for reducing the latency of page views in high-volume web applications by running time-consuming tasks asynchronously; ZeroMQ: Fast, lightweight messaging library that allows you to design complex communication system without much effort. 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.

Beanstalkd belongs to "Background Processing" category of the tech stack, while ZeroMQ can be primarily classified under "Message Queue".

"Fast" is the top reason why over 20 developers like Beanstalkd, while over 17 developers mention "Fast" as the leading cause for choosing ZeroMQ.

Beanstalkd and ZeroMQ are both open source tools. It seems that ZeroMQ with 5.34K GitHub stars and 1.57K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Beanstalkd with 5.12K GitHub stars and 748 GitHub forks.

Binary.com, GrowSumo, and indico are some of the popular companies that use ZeroMQ, whereas Beanstalkd is used by Douban, Rollbar, and Vigil. ZeroMQ has a broader approval, being mentioned in 35 company stacks & 12 developers stacks; compared to Beanstalkd, which is listed in 27 company stacks and 8 developer stacks.

      Our platform is based on interconnected services with a custom RPC protocol based on ZeroMQ and inspired by ZeroMQs LPP/MDP protocols.
