CloudAMQP vs Sparrow: What are the differences?

Developers describe CloudAMQP as "RabbitMQ as a Service". Fully managed, highly available RabbitMQ servers and clusters, on all major compute platforms. On the other hand, Sparrow is detailed as "A really fast lightweight queue written in Ruby that speaks memcache". Sparrow keeps messages in memory, but persists them to disk, using Sqlite, when the queue is shutdown.

CloudAMQP and Sparrow can be categorized as "Message Queue" tools.

Decisions about CloudAMQP and Sparrow

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!
