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.

Good service but price model is questionable

Review Source: Capterra

We need sequential process high # of messages, we are looking for cloud sequential message solution to integrate with our full Cloud processing cluster design. AWS SQS can't guarantee "sequential" and "process only once)", IronMQ is right what we need when need a quick POC. The initial stage works really great using the cheap charging model. When our message volumes increase (still under the technical "CAP"), we met couple times of random wisdom issue. The support is quick and fix the issue, then another error pattern show up again. So IronMQ asked to upgrade payment plan. 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.

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

Used daily for 2+ years
Reviewed 2019-02-15
Review Source: Capterra

We needed a cloud-hosted push queue to distribute work across several worker nodes that we were hosting and ironMQ was the perfect solution. The Node.js sdk allowed us to set up very quickly the necessary code to send the jobs requests, and then you just need to set up your queue to push your messages to these subscribed workers. Another feature we liked was the availability of some Docker images that mimicked the authentication and queue behaviour for testing locally. We've used extensively in our docker-compose stacks.

Pros
Very easy to set up projects, queues, subscribers. Good value for money.

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.

IronMQ Helps us Streamline Ecommerce

Review Source: Capterra

We use IronMQ to queue emails for our custom ecommerce platform and also for delaying address verification.

Pros
One of the best features of IronMQ are the push queues. We also love the Heroku add-on that gives us a greats solution for fast hosting. One of its best features, though, is the great support... very responsive and helpful!

Cons
The only con we can think of is the pricing structure. Scaling this service can get a little expensive, though, depending on your needs, can be worth it in the long term.

Review Source: Capterra

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. Good price point

Cons
No out of box integration with spring cloud data flow

Interaction with go driver is great!

Used weekly for 6-12 months

Review Source: Capterra

I wrote a search engine that had to coordinate several crawlers. I used IronMQ because I didn't want to setup any of the other message queues. 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. Really good experience.

Pros
How easy it was to get up and running. At least the Go driver let's you put your config files in several places, following a hierarchy to override one value or another.

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.

Review Source: Capterra

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 run a pretty lean startup and need to offload as much development operations as possible. We looked at AWS of course and discovered IronMQ to be the right balance of functionality, ease-of-use, and cost. The Worker and MessageQueue products are particularly top-notch.

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.
