RabbitMQ and microservices

RabbitMQ et les microservices

RabbitMQ : mediator between microservices

RabbitMQ is an open source messaging solution that promotes asynchrone communication and distributed modeling between microservices. Supports several messaging protocols such as AMQP, it is also deployable on various platforms, whether On-premise or in Cloud.

The availability and reliability of RabbitMQ comes from the use of a queuing system. The latter allows you to store each message until it arrives to the target application.

RabbitMQ is flexible and scalable thanks to its message routing system and cluster management. These make it possible to adapt the necessary resources according to the specific needs of microservices.

The solution is compatible with multiple programming languages and can be used in event-driven architectures. Security is also required to guarantee the encryption, confidentiality and integrity of the messages exchanged.

Finally, all these attributes make RabbitMQ a solution particularly suitable for microservices architecture.

Why choose RabbitMQ?

  • Reliability : ensures message delivery from point A to point B, and manages queue service in the event of failures of various kinds
  • Flexibility : offers a variety of messaging protocols to meet the specific needs of every microservices architecture
  • Availability : able to handle large volumes of events thanks to its cluster system
  • Security : offers advanced security features such as authentication, access control, data encryption, ...

RabbitMQ and Kafka Services Comparison

Features RabbitMQ Kafka
Ecosystem and integration Large ecosystem with multiple libraries and plugins Limited number of plugins available but similar in term of libraries
Deployment and administration Intuitive and easy-to-configure user interface More complex configuration, requires a higher level of mastery
Interoperability The use of standard protocols for communication facilitates the transition to another message broker if necessary Kafka uses its own protocol, which has a strong dependency on this solution
Messaging model Support for various messaging models such as queues and exchanges Focused primarily on the Publish-Subscribe model, but can also be used for point-to-point communication
