ZeroMQ: Popular and Controversial

Is iPaaS solving the right problems? Not knowing the fundamental difference between iPaaS and dPaaS could cost you down the road. Brought to you in partnership with Liaison Technologies.

I found a very good review  of ZeroMQ from Pieter Hintjens, a veteran in distributed software.  He not only had a strength and weakness review of ZeroMQ, but he also had an interesting and critical take on a popular message queue, RabbitMQ:

RabbitMQ makes big problems simpler by putting a broker in the middle and mandating, “This is the centre of everything”. It’s like saying, “The centre of the Internet is Facebook”.  Simpler, if not totally accurate. RabbitMQ is a great piece of software but I’d never use it. It would be like using Subversion again when I’ve understood how Git works.   -- Pieter Hintjens


I've also condensed his pros and cons (well only one) into a bulleted list here:

Con

  • Security has to be layered on top.

Pros

  • Patterns and transports
  • Support for over 40 languages
  • Easier multithreading
