About IronMQ

IronMQ is a cloud-agnostic message queue solution which enables communication between components and services. The platform supports a range of features including push and pull queues, error queues, long polling, alerts and triggers, and is designed to support businesses of all sizes.

With IronMQ, users can connect distributed systems through a messaging layer, and manage message and event volumes flowing between applications, services, and sites. Multiple message queues are supported, as are a range of client libraries including Ruby, PHP, Python, .Net, Node, Rust and Java. Automated failover ensures that queues are automatically pointed to alternative availability zones during outages, without requiring code changes. IronMQ can be run in the cloud, or installed on-premise for security and compliance in industries such as government and healthcare.

We process millions of jobs a month and needed a way to scale outside of running our own Sidekiq instance. Worker and MessageQueue were the team that solved it for us.

Pros

We run a pretty lean startup and need to offload as much development operations as possible. We looked at AWS of course and discovered IronMQ to be the right balance of functionality, ease-of-use, and cost. The Worker and MessageQueue products are particularly top-notch.

Cons

It was difficult to migrate off of our existing infrastructure but the team at Iron tried hard to ease the pain. There's probably no way around it. Not everything will transfer seamlessly but we were able to do it with minimal downtime.

Simple, Scaleable Queue service

Reviewed on 2019/02/15

Pros

Documentation is straight forward, its nice that they have sdks / plugins for major frameworks like laravel to work with the native queue system.

Cons

as frameworks evolve and their queuing feature become more robust, having those features brought though to the platform would be amazing. for example https://horizon.laravel.com/ has some cool retry features. some stats on processing time.

IronMQ at the time was the simplest integration for our small PHP Laravel app on Heroku. We are still stuck on it despite having grown significantly. Even when we were small we faced myriad horrible technical issues that should never happen with any production 3rd party service -- loss of data, frequent outages, god awful performance, buggy UI causing you to have to revert to your own API usage for simple queue management tasks, etc.

I would never put it past a company to improve over time so I won't just tell you to run away as fast as you can, but SERIOUSLY if you ever are actually considering using Iron or someone tries to convince you to use it, you should be prepared to justify that decision against very mature, very serious competition at this point. Queuing is more or less a solved problem including managed solutions in the cloud; Iron doesn't hold a candle to the competition at this point in time.

Pros

- Signed up on a free plan
- Integrated easily with Heroku

Cons

- Randomly lost queues several times during THEIR outages
- Very slow performance
- Horrible support; sometimes WEEKS without response
- Horrible documentation -- out of date, incomplete, etc.
- Minimal feature set -- not even close to competitors
- Terrible, buggy UI online

IronMQ let us quickly get to solving the problems that really mattered for our company

Reviewed on 2019/02/15

Pros

IronMQ was simple to implement in our system. We use it for a number of use cases and find it reliable, fast, and easy to use.

Cons

I can't think of any specific issue we've had with IronMQ. When we first started we organized things in an awkward way which lead to a large number of projects appearing on the dashboard when logging into Iron. That was mostly our own fault though.

Solid software with some room for improvement.

Reviewed on 2019/02/26

Pros

The software is generally very reliable and powerful. The backend seems to be rock solid.

Cons

The user interface and API aren't exactly intuitive or easy to use.
