RSMQ vs Samza: What are the differences?

Developers describe RSMQ 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. On the other hand, Samza is detailed as "A distributed stream processing framework". Samza allows you to build stateful applications that process data in real-time from multiple sources including Apache Kafka.

RSMQ and Samza belong to "Message Queue" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by RSMQ are:

  • Lightweight: Just Redis and ~500 lines of javascript.
  • Guaranteed delivery of a message to exactly one recipient within a messages visibility timeout.
  • Received messages that are not deleted will reappear after the visibility timeout.

On the other hand, Samza provides the following key features:

  • HIGH PERFORMANCE
  • HORIZONTALLY SCALABLE
  • EASY TO OPERATE

        Amazon SQS
        Transmit any volume of data, at any level of throughput, without losing messages or requiring other services to be always available. With SQS, you can offload the administrative burden of operating and scaling a highly available messaging cluster, while paying a low price for only what you use.
        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.
        ActiveMQ
        Apache ActiveMQ is fast, supports many Cross Language Clients and Protocols, comes with easy to use Enterprise Integration Patterns and many advanced features while fully supporting JMS 1.1 and J2EE 1.4. Apache ActiveMQ is released under the Apache 2.0 License.
