Excerpt

Not sure what queuing system to use for your next project? How about the differences between broker vs direct queue services? What is a good fit for cloud vs your own data center? This session gathers information from open source queuing projects to help answer these questions and more. Queues are part of almost every scalable website and application, it's time to find the best fit for yours.

Description

Why do you even need a queue, and which one should you use? There are a number of queuing options out there today, and while options are great, it is sometimes hard to examine all the features of each to determine the best fit. As you start to look deeper into the options certain patterns and features emerge. Some projects are more suitable for certain environments, and it would be nice to learn which one best matches your environment.

This session gives an overview of a number of open source queuing systems categorized by feature sets and explains what each feature means and when it comes in useful.
