Open source Apache Kafka is currently marketed as the be-all and end-all of streaming and messaging platforms. RabbitMQ is a tried-and-true application messaging platform that excels when applied to a distinct set of appropriate use cases. The same is true for a handful of other competing messaging platforms now available to developers—from open source Kafka and RabbitMQ, to solutions like TIBCO and IBM MQ backed by Fortune 500 companies, to wildcards like Pulsar.
Attendees of this session will take a deep dive into understanding the strengths, shortcomings, and optimal use cases for applying each of these distributed messaging technologies. Bring your questions, and come away knowing how to apply the right tool for the job when it comes to your own business’ needs.
