Presenting RabbitMQ: An Erlang Based Implementation of AMQP

By Erlang Central | Published: June 23, 2008

Matthias and Tony will be presenting on RabbitMQ, an Erlang implementation of AMQP,
the emerging standard for high performance enterprise messaging. Erlang
is well known delivering a highly scalable and stable environment for
applications that involve messaging. When JP Morgan Chase and others
introduced AMQP, a new standard l4 protocol for busisness messaging and
integration, Erlang seemed an obvious choice. This talk will explain
the business rationale of this decision in detail and describe the
technology and architecture of the ensuing product, RabbitMQ. Today,
RabbitMQ is used in solutions across multiple languages and platforms
such as Java, Linux, C# on .net, Python and of course Erlang. For
people who want to benefit what Erlang brings to the table, products
that implement a protocol as their API seem to be delivering value.
