Apache Kafka

Apache Kafka is extremely well suited in near real-time scenarios, high volume or multi-location projects. It can solve escalation problems for a fraction of the cost other solutions do and it has the flexibility of open source scenarios.

TIBCO Rendezvous

TIBCO Rendezvous is a fast and reliable mode of communication, although they are already outdated by TIBCO FTL, which is even more faster and reliable than it's predecessor. They are more suitable for communication between the TIBCO products as all the TIBCO suite of products support the TIBCO Rendezvous. They are more widely used by banks and stock ticker applications to broadcast the ticker information.Most of the applications support Java JMS mode easily and out of the box than the TIBCO Rendezvous. Hence the TIBCO software themselves have their own version of the JMS server called Tibco EMS ( Tibco Enterprise messaging service).

TIBCO Rendezvous

  • TIBCO Rendezvous is not recognized very well by other software vendors as much as Java "JMS" is recognized. Hence they are no supported out-of-box by all the software vendors.
  • Although Tibco Rendezvous does not require a central server to host all the communication, they need Tibco Rendezvous daemon process running in the application to be able to send and receive a Rendezvous message. Which means all the applications need a software license to communicate over the Tibco Rendezvous.
  • Comparing to Java JMS which an open source product, TIBCO Rendezvous needs a software license for communicating with each other.

Kafka is quickly becoming core product of the organization, indeed it is replacing older messaging systems. No better alternatives found yet

Not likely to renew or buy the license as they are using the TIBCO EMS as the primary mode of communication.

Alternatives Considered

Apache Kafka

Kafka is faster and more scalable, also "free" as opensource (albeit we deploy using a commercial distribution). Infrastructure tends to be cheaper. On the other hand, projects must adapt to Kafka APIs that sometimes change and BAU increases until a major 1.x version comes out and adds stability to the product.

TIBCO Rendezvous

  • Positive - RV supports faster delivery of messages to multiple subscribers (asynchronous communications)
  • Negative - RV doesn't support centralized administration and guarantee delivery is more accurate like EMS Persistent delivery mode
