Que vs Sidekiq: What are the differences?

Developers describe Que as "A Ruby job queue that uses PostgreSQL's advisory locks for speed and reliability". Que is a high-performance alternative to DelayedJob or QueueClassic that improves the reliability of your application by protecting your jobs with the same ACID guarantees as the rest of your data. On the other hand, Sidekiq is detailed as "Simple, efficient background processing for Ruby". Sidekiq uses threads to handle many jobs at the same time in the same process. It does not require Rails but will integrate tightly with Rails 3/4 to make background processing dead simple.

Que and Sidekiq belong to "Background Processing" category of the tech stack.

Que and Sidekiq are both open source tools. Sidekiq with 9.66K GitHub stars and 1.66K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Que with 1.47K GitHub stars and 119 GitHub forks.

    What are some alternatives to Que and Sidekiq?
    Hangfire
    It is an open-source framework that helps you to create, process and manage your background jobs, i.e. operations you don't want to put in your request processing pipeline. It supports all kind of background tasks – short-running and long-running, CPU intensive and I/O intensive, one shot and recurrent.
    Resque
    Background jobs can be any Ruby class or module that responds to perform. Your existing classes can easily be converted to background jobs or you can create new classes specifically to do work. Or, you can do both.
    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.
    PHP-FPM
    It is an alternative PHP FastCGI implementation with some additional features useful for sites of any size, especially busier sites. It includes Adaptive process spawning, Advanced process management with graceful stop/start, Emergency restart in case of accidental opcode cache destruction etc.
    delayed_job
    Delayed_job (or DJ) encapsulates the common pattern of asynchronously executing longer tasks in the background. It is a direct extraction from Shopify where the job table is responsible for a multitude of core tasks.
