Sandglass vs ZeroMQ: What are the differences?

What is Sandglass? Distributed, scalable, persistent time-sorted message queue. A distributed, horizontally scalable, persistent, time ordered message queue. Developed to support asynchronous tasks and message scheduling which makes it suitable for usage as a task queue.

What is ZeroMQ? Fast, lightweight messaging library that allows you to design complex communication system without much effort. The 0MQ lightweight messaging kernel is a library which extends the standard socket interfaces with features traditionally provided by specialised messaging middleware products. 0MQ sockets provide an abstraction of asynchronous message queues, multiple messaging patterns, message filtering (subscriptions), seamless access to multiple transport protocols and more.

Sandglass and ZeroMQ can be primarily classified as "Message Queue" tools.

Some of the features offered by Sandglass are:

  • Horizontal scalability
  • Highly available
  • Persistent storage

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

  • Connect your code in any language, on any platform.
  • Carries messages across inproc, IPC, TCP, TPIC, multicast.
  • Smart patterns like pub-sub, push-pull, and router-dealer.

Sandglass and ZeroMQ are both open source tools. It seems that ZeroMQ with 5.33K GitHub stars and 1.57K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Sandglass with 1.52K GitHub stars and 40 GitHub forks.

        What are some alternatives to Sandglass and ZeroMQ?
        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.
        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.
        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.

        Our platform is based on interconnected services with a custom RPC protocol based on ZeroMQ and inspired by ZeroMQs LPP/MDP protocols.
