CloudAMQP vs WCF: 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 WCF? A runtime and a set of APIs for building connected, service-oriented applications. It is a framework for building service-oriented applications. Using this, you can send data as asynchronous messages from one service endpoint to another. A service endpoint can be part of a continuously available service hosted by IIS, or it can be a service hosted in an application.
CloudAMQP belongs to "Message Queue" category of the tech stack, while WCF can be primarily classified under "Realtime Backend / API".
Guaana, Apartment List, and Gigster are some of the popular companies that use CloudAMQP, whereas WCF is used by Bluebeam Software, Heimdal Security, and KGS Buildings. CloudAMQP has a broader approval, being mentioned in 12 company stacks & 5 developers stacks; compared to WCF, which is listed in 8 company stacks and 3 developer stacks.
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!
