2017 marks the 10th birthday of RabbitMQ, the versatile open source message broker. RabbitMQ has come a long way from its humble beginnings over a decade ago and today is used to support some of the most demanding cloud-native applications in the world. RabbitMQ's evolution into a truly enterprise-grade message broker is thanks in part to people like Carl Hörberg. Hörberg is the Founder and CEO of 84codes AB, a Swedish company that offers RabbitMQ as a managed service. The service, called CloudAMQP, gives developers the ease of use and flexibility of RabbitMQ but removes the burden of managing the underlying server.
In this episode of Pivotal Insights, Hörberg joins me and my guest co-host, Pivotal's Greg Chase, to chat about RabbitMQ's ten year anniversary, how uses of RabbitMQ are changing in light of new and emerging application patterns such as microservices, and how CloudAMQP integrates with Pivotal Web Services to deliver a complete cloud-native platform as a service.
