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 CloudAMQP?

Fully managed, highly available RabbitMQ servers and clusters, on all major compute platforms.

What is Kafka?

Kafka is a distributed, partitioned, replicated commit log service. It provides the functionality of a messaging system, but with a unique design.

    What are some alternatives to Celery, CloudAMQP, and Kafka?
    RabbitMQ
    RabbitMQ gives your applications a common platform to send and receive messages, and your messages a safe place to live until received.
    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.
    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.
    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.
    MQTT
    It was designed as an extremely lightweight publish/subscribe messaging transport. It is useful for connections with remote locations where a small code footprint is required and/or network bandwidth is at a premium.

    Front-end messages are logged to Kafka by our API and application servers. We have batch processing (on the middle-left) and real-time processing (on the middle-right) pipelines to process the experiment data. For batch processing, after daily raw log get to s3, we start our nightly experiment workflow to figure out experiment users groups and experiment metrics. We use our in-house workflow management system Pinball to manage the dependencies of all these MapReduce jobs.

    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

    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.

    We are using Kafka as a message queue to process our widget logs.
