We're big fans of RabbitMQ: not only is it a popular option on Compose, it's a core part of the Compose infrastructure. As we just updated to RabbitMQ 3.6.5, we thought it'd be a good time to celebrate so this month we're giving away free Compose RabbitMQ t-shirts. Deploy RabbitMQ this month and we will send you an email with a link to collect your limited edition, designer-crafted t-shirt.
Why use RabbitMQ? RabbitMQ is a message broker that lets you route, track and queue messages between your applications and databases. As business demands change, so does your environment - what started as a single DBMS may have morphed into several members communicating information between one another. That’s where RabbitMQ can help.
RabbitMQ can provide an additional layer of logic and efficiency for communication between apps. RabbitMQ decouples the moving parts of your system so that the gears move smoothly even when some parts of the system may be under load.
We've put together a list of helpful articles for getting started on RabbitMQ in our aptly named Curated Collection: RabbitMQ. Two articles you might be interested in reading first are Getting Started with RabbitMQ and Configuring RabbitMQ Exchanges, Queues and Bindings Part 1/Part 2.
On Compose, RabbitMQ is production-ready from the get-go and includes a 3-node HA cluster that autoscales with your application. See what RabbitMQ can do for you and try it this month to get a free t-shirt. If you aren't already using Compose, take the opportunity to get a 30 day, free trial of all of Compose's services - just don't forget to try out RabbitMQ.
