      What are some alternatives to Gearman, IronMQ, and NSQ?
      RabbitMQ
      RabbitMQ gives your applications a common platform to send and receive messages, and your messages a safe place to live until received.
      Kafka
      Kafka is a distributed, partitioned, replicated commit log service. It provides the functionality of a messaging system, but with a unique design.
      Celery
      Celery is an asynchronous task queue/job queue based on distributed message passing. It is focused on real-time operation, but supports scheduling as well.
      Redis
      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.
      Beanstalkd
      Beanstalks's interface is generic, but was originally designed for reducing the latency of page views in high-volume web applications by running time-consuming tasks asynchronously.

      I deploy to Heroku. However, my applications require full linux applications that cannot be deployed to Heroku. I deploy them to Rackspace.

      Then Heroku and Rackspace communicate over IronMQ. Problem solved.

      Internal, distributed message queue. Main communication happens via port 4730 and consists of simple json messages. Completely independent of the main website back-end.
