About the Technology
At the heart of most modern distributed applications is a queue that buffers, prioritizes, and routes message traffic. RabbitMQ is a high-performance message broker based on the Advanced Message Queueing Protocol. It?s battle tested, ultrafast, and powerful enough to handle anything you can throw at it. It requires a few simple setup steps, and you can instantly start using it to manage low-level service communication, application integration, and distributed system message routing.
