Performance: King of the Castle

Performance. The one thing people always think about with messaging. And, of course, a cloud‑based messaging provider couldn’t be fast, could they?

Wrong. Some measurements on our new engine from real clients (connected over ADSL2+ broadband), are below:‐

ScenarioMessagesTimeThroughput
Send1,00086 ms11,600 / second
Receive1,000204 ms4,900 / second
  • Messages were small, non‑persistent and sent to non‑durable queues.
  • A direct AMQP exchange type was used.
  • No ‘Acks’ or transactions were used.

Yes, we know it’s idealised, but you might want to compare us to the nearest competition. We’re encrypted end‑to‑end and on disk. Transparently.

And we can go faster. For the ultimate in messaging, we offer Dedicated Clusters, and even colocation of key service endpoints. Just ask us. We’d be delighted to hear from you.
