RabbitMQ

If you are looking for a message broker, RabbitMQ is pretty good. Its API lets you create tons of queues on demand and publish to all of them at once, while you can have 10+ consumers on each queue. It also does a good job of absorbing bursts of traffic. We've seen our queues get backed up to 3 million messages with no problem.In the modern era of GDPR, you may run into problems with keeping messages encrypted out of the box in-flight and at-rest with RabbitMQ. Not saying it's impossible, but it's tough to set up and you have to pay a high overload.

Redis

Perfect solution for caching needs. If you have a bottleneck due to frequent data access to your database, then Redis can really help you by diverting those traffic away from your database. Its key/value pair structure also makes data lookup very efficient, providing excellent performance.

Pros

RabbitMQ

  • High Performance
  • Integrates well with Spring
  • Easy Setup
Christopher Maggiulli | TrustRadius Reviewer

Redis

  • Easy for developers to understand. Unlike Riak, which I've used in the past, it's fast without having to worry about eventual consistency.
  • Reliable. With a proper multi-node configuration, it can handle failover instantly.
  • Configurable. We primarily still use Memcache for caching but one of the teams uses Redis for both long-term storage and temporary expiry keys without taking on another external dependency.
  • Fast. We process tens of thousands of RPS and it doesn't skip a beat.

Cons

RabbitMQ

  • Support for SSL/TLS.
  • Failover RabbitMQ cluster for high traffic environments.
  • The documentation needs improvement in explaining how to configure the above-mentioned features.

Redis

  • We had some difficulty scaling Redis without it becoming prohibitively expensive.
  • Redis has very simple search capabilities, which means its not suitable for all use cases.
  • Redis doesn't have good native support for storing data in object form and many libraries built over it return data as a string, meaning you need build your own serialization layer over it.

We will definitely continue using Redis because:1. It is free and open source.2. We already use it in so many applications, it will be hard for us to let go.3. There isn't another competitive product that we know of that gives a better performance.4. We never had any major issues with Redis, so no point turning our backs.

RabbitMQ is very usable if you are a programmer or DevOps engineer. You can setup and configure a messaging system without any programmatic knowledge either through an admin console plugin or through a command-line interface. It's very easy to spin up additional consumers when volume is heavy and it's very easy to manage those consumers either through automated scripting or through their admin console. Because it's language agnostic it integrates with any system supporting AMQP.

Redis has been around for very long and it is good at what it does. It proved to be very valuable in my use case for interfacing between two applications with very little code as it has drivers for almost every language out there and the community support is really good.

The support team has always been excellent in handling our mostly questions, rarely problems. They are responsive, find the solution and get us moving forward again. I have never had to escalate a case with them. They have always solved our problems in a very timely manner. I highly commend the support team.

Alternatives Considered

RabbitMQ

Honestly, though we're still trying out Kafka and Pulsar, I'd go with them for message broker and as traffic buffers. We are only still using RabbitMQ because it's hard to transition off after writing tons of code custom-built for RabbitMQ. Kafka is better because it's way more durable and observable. You have less risk of data loss. You can replay messages easily and quickly. I like Pulsar more at a high level (haven't tried operating it myself yet) because it's more naturally scalable. You can easily divide up the work onto multiple Pulsar instances without having to re-architect your code, I think. RabbitMQ on the other hand is really hard to scale horizontally.

Redis

We are big users of MySQL and PostgreSQL. We were looking at replacing our aging web page caching technology and found that we could do it in SQL, but there was a NoSQL movement happening at the time. We dabbled a bit in the NoSQL scene just to get an idea of what it was about and whether it was for us. We tried a bunch, but I can only seem to remember Mongo and Couch. Mongo had big issues early on that drove us to Redis and we couldn't quite figure out how to deploy couch.

Return on Investment

RabbitMQ

  • Can't quote in terms of figures but can say it's the backbone of our company in effective monitoring of our sms platform
Patrick lampatt | TrustRadius Reviewer

Redis

  • Redis has helped us increase our throughput and server data to a growing amount of traffic while keeping our app fast. We couldn't have grown without the ability to easily cache data that Redis provides.
  • Redis has helped us decrease the load on our database. By being able to scale up and cache important data, we reduce the load on our database reducing costs and infra issues.
  • Running a Redis node on something like AWS can be costly, but it is often a requirement for scaling a company. If you need data quickly and your business is already a positive ROI, Redis is worth the investment.
