Highly Scalable Queues for your distributed systems

2019-02-20

Great tool that helps your business to easily setup integrations with any 3rd party vendors.

Pros

- highly available, fast and performant, haven't noticed any issues for more than 2 years of usage; - different types of queues are supported (push, pull) so you can choose what fits more for your needs; - simple to setup and use, needs almost zero maintenance after successful setup; - clear and straightforward dashboard UI and API documentation; - friendly support that ready to help with any questions;

Cons

- sometimes it could be useful to see more details in usage reporting, some kind of filters or grouping by queue's name;

Evaluate with great caution and care before committing

2019-02-15

Even when we were small we faced myriad horrible technical issues that should never happen with any production 3rd party service -- loss of data, frequent outages, god awful performance, buggy UI causing you to have to revert to your own API usage for simple queue management tasks, etc.

Pros

- Signed up on a free plan - Integrated easily with Heroku

Cons

. - Minimal feature set -- not even close to competitors - Terrible, buggy UI online

Great Scalable solution with bang for the buck

2019-03-26

Use it to build a service which gets intermittent high loads and still maintain good sla levels on processing while not loosing messages. Ironmq and ironworker together help me with scaling and processing in cloud native fashion. On prem install helps where we have to have a onpremise install

Pros

Ease of use, scalability for handling intermittent high loads, integration with iron worker.

Cons

No out of box integration with spring cloud data flow

Great product - High cosr

2019-02-26

It has been great worked as promised. Getting a hold of their support is sometimes slow.

Pros

Great product helps us manage our data from our internal database to our eCrm

Cons

The price went up dramatically from the last few years. We need the service but if someone referred a cheaper solution we would switch.

Interaction with go driver is great!

2019-02-15

I wrote my app in Go, and the go driver to talk to IronMQ was well designed, easy to follow examples on their site. The dashboard gives you enough info to debug any issues.

Pros

How easy it was to get up and running.

Cons

This will sound like a fake review but my experience was just very good with IronMQ, there wasn't anything I needed that wasn't there.

Good service but price model is questionable

2019-03-01

Unfortunately we don't want to invest too much for one feature of our solution, so instead we use 2 weeks to create a home-build Aurora based solution, performance/reliability much better than IronMQ cheap option, and cheap than their expensive option.

Pros

Very easy to integrate, all features are available for quick trial, and support is good

Cons

The huge quality gap before development solution and enterprise solution, even the traffic is under the CAP. We did meet couple times of random low-frequency issue for cheaper version, and the only solution offered to us is to upgrade to Enterprise version.

Great framework with room to improve

2019-02-15

Pros

The REST API is easy to understand and adapt.

Cons

Again, admin console is the weakest link here. In several scenarios I have to navigate lots of steps to get what I want.

Simple, Scaleable Queue service

2019-02-15

Pros

Documentation is straight forward, its nice that they have sdks / plugins for major frameworks like laravel to work with the native queue system.

Cons

as frameworks evolve and their queuing feature become more robust, having those features brought though to the platform would be amazing. for example https://horizon.laravel.com/ has some cool retry features. some stats on processing time.

Great product

2019-02-26

I'm very happy with using IronMQ and would gladly recommend it in the future.

Pros

I liked that it had the capability to hit an endpoint on my app for processing the job instead of figuring out cron tasks to process the queue.

Cons

Debugging was initially tricky but once I figured out the UI, it was very simple.

IronMQ let us quickly get to solving the problems that really mattered for our company

2019-02-15

Pros

We use it for a number of use cases and find it reliable, fast, and easy to use.

Cons

When we first started we organized things in an awkward way which lead to a large number of projects appearing on the dashboard when logging into Iron.

Good, but now more pricey (used to be free)

2019-03-01

Pros

All worked nicely and customer support was indeed supported.

Cons

It used to be affordable for us for quite some time. We relied on this, but since they introduced a price hike, we have been unable to keep subscribing to Iron.

Set up a push queue in few minutes

2019-02-15

Another feature we liked was the availability of some Docker images that mimicked the authentication and queue behaviour for testing locally.

Pros

Very easy to set up projects, queues, subscribers.

Cons

The company seems to be quite focused on IronWorker and the product plans do not contemplate a low-volume case when you just need a cloud-hosted push queue server to distribute amongs subscribers. Documentation on local setup with Docker is limited.

Efficiency is the name of the game

2019-02-15

We process millions of jobs a month and needed a way to scale outside of running our own Sidekiq instance. Worker and MessageQueue were the team that solved it for us.

Pros

We looked at AWS of course and discovered IronMQ to be the right balance of functionality, ease-of-use, and cost.

Cons

It was difficult to migrate off of our existing infrastructure but the team at Iron tried hard to ease the pain. There's probably no way around it. Not everything will transfer seamlessly but we were able to do it with minimal downtime.
