Disque vs Kestrel: What are the differences?
Disque: In-memory, distributed job queue. Disque is an ongoing experiment to build a distributed, in-memory, message broker. Its goal is to capture the essence of the "Redis as a jobs queue" use case, which is usually implemented using blocking list operations, and move it into an ad-hoc, self-contained, scalable, and fault tolerant design, with simple to understand properties and guarantees, but still resembling Redis in terms of simplicity, performance, and implementation as a C non-blocking networked server; Kestrel: Simple, distributed message queue system. Kestrel is based on Blaine Cook's "starling" simple, distributed message queue, with added features and bulletproofing, as well as the scalability offered by actors and the JVM.
Disque and Kestrel belong to "Message Queue" category of the tech stack.
Disque and Kestrel are both open source tools. Disque with 7.37K GitHub stars and 516 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Kestrel with 2.8K GitHub stars and 326 GitHub forks.
