CloudAMQP vs Redis: What are the differences?

What is CloudAMQP? RabbitMQ as a Service. Fully managed, highly available RabbitMQ servers and clusters, on all major compute platforms.

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.

CloudAMQP belongs to "Message Queue" category of the tech stack, while Redis can be primarily classified under "In-Memory Databases".

"Some of the best customer support you'll ever find" is the top reason why over 3 developers like CloudAMQP, while over 842 developers mention "Performance" as the leading cause for choosing Redis.

Redis is an open source tool with 37.4K GitHub stars and 14.4K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Redis's open source repository on GitHub.

Airbnb, Uber Technologies, and Instagram are some of the popular companies that use Redis, whereas CloudAMQP is used by Guaana, Gigster, and Travis CI. Redis has a broader approval, being mentioned in 3263 company stacks & 1784 developers stacks; compared to CloudAMQP, which is listed in 12 company stacks and 5 developer stacks.

Decisions about CloudAMQP and Redis

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!
