IBM MQ vs RSMQ: What are the differences?

Developers describe IBM MQ as "Enterprise-grade messaging middleware". It is a messaging middleware that simplifies and accelerates the integration of diverse applications and business data across multiple platforms. It offers proven, enterprise-grade messaging capabilities that skillfully and safely move information. On the other hand, RSMQ is detailed as "A lightweight message queue for Node.js that requires no dedicated queue server. Just a Redis server". tl;dr: If you run a Redis server and currently use Amazon SQS or a similar message queue you might as well use this fast little replacement. Using a shared Redis server multiple Node.js processes can send / receive messages.

IBM MQ and RSMQ can be categorized as "Message Queue" tools.

RSMQ is an open source tool with 1.07K GitHub stars and 78 GitHub forks. Here's a link to RSMQ's open source repository on GitHub.
