CloudAMQP vs Starling: 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, Starling is detailed as "A light weight server for reliable distributed message passing". Starling is a powerful but simple messaging server that enables reliable distributed queuing with an absolutely minimal overhead. It speaks the MemCache protocol for maximum cross-platform compatibility. Any language that speaks MemCache can take advantage of Starling's queue facilities.

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

Some of the features offered by CloudAMQP are:

  • Support - 24/7 support, via email, chat and phone.
  • Real time metrics and alarms - Get notified in advanced when your queues are growing faster than you're consuming them, when you're servers are over loaded etc. and take action before it becomes a problem.
  • Auto-healing - Our monitoring systems automatically detects and fixes a lot of problems such as kernel bugs, auto-restarts, RabbitMQ/Erlang version upgrades etc.

On the other hand, Starling provides the following key features:

  • Written by Blaine Cook at Twitter
  • Starling is a Message Queue Server based on MemCached
  • Written in Ruby

Starling is an open source tool with 468 GitHub stars and 63 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Starling's open source repository on GitHub.

Decisions about CloudAMQP and Starling

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!
