IronMQ Message Queue

Scalable, Serverless, Lightning Fast Message Queue Starting at $0/mo.

No Server Management

Building and maintaining servers is never a one-time effort. Leveraging IronMQ lets you focus on your core competencies. With IronMQ, you will be able to handle spikes in traffic and system load without having to manage infrastructure.

Do It Yourself Is Costly

Building a highly available distributed cloud architecture that can seamlessly scale is costly and out of reach of most organizations. Additionally, compute resources are only a fraction of the total cost. Overhead around development, operations, and maintenance can quickly consume budgets.

Messages Won’t Get Lost

Just connect to IronMQ endpoints and you have instant access to unlimited message queueing. Provides on-demand service with one-time FIFO delivery, message persistence and cloud-optimized performance. With IronMQ, your messages won’t get lost, your data is not compromised, and your systems are streamlined.

No Queuing Methodology Code

IronMQ supports a variety of methods of getting messages. Pull queues periodically ask a client to check for messages, push queues inform subscribers when a message is added, and long polling allows you to keep a connection open with a queue until a message has been added. With IronMQ, you can easily configure individual queues, your queues will reach maximum efficiency, and you won’t need extra code for your queueing methodology.

Meet User Demands By Scaling

Written with elasticity and scale at its core, IronMQ is built using Go, a high-performance language designed for concurrency. It runs on industrial-strength clouds and is architected for iron-clad reliability.

Durable and Secure

IronMQ offers message persistence and redundancy right from the start so your queues are durable and highly available. HTTPS and SSL provide a secure gateway, favorable REST API, and OAuth provides strong scalable authentication.

Work in Your Language and Cloud

Make use of a large set of IronMQ language libraries including Ruby, PHP, Python, Java, .NET, Go, and more. Whatever your native tongue is, IronMQ speaks it.

Reach Maximum Reliability

Dedicated clusters provide you a cloud service without the crowd. Private clusters are for your queues and your queues only. With IronMQ, your service level requirements will be met, your queues will reach maximum reliability, and your queues will be as fast as the cloud.

Leverage Your Queues

Messages that do not reach their intended subscriber will be placed on an error queue to be retried until delivery is successful. Place alerts on your queues that notify your systems when they reach a certain number of messages for incorporating actions such as auto-scaling, failure detection, load-monitoring, and system health. With IronMQ, your queues are persistent and failure safe, your queues are elastic, and you can leverage queues as a system monitoring tool.

Reach Maximum Availability

IronMQ is a global service that runs on multiple clouds and availability zones. For advanced users with critical messaging needs, queues can be automatically point to alternative zones in case of an outage without having to change any code. With IronMQ and automated region failover, your queues will reach maximum availability and you won’t be affected by outages.

Great Scalable Solution

“We use IronWorker and IronMQ to build a service which gets intermittent high loads and still maintain good SLA levels on processing while not loosing messages. These services help us with scaling and processing in cloud native fashion. Our on premise install gives us the flexibility we need as an enterprise.”
