Introducing Managed RabbitMQ - build and scale with queues and message brokers

We’re very excited to release Managed RabbitMQ support on Northflank. RabbitMQ is the most widely deployed open-source message broker. A number of Northflank users requested a DBaaS experience via Addons and we’re pleased to say it’s live in production now after a month of early access.

Why deploy RabbitMQ on Northflank

  • Your first cluster deployed in minutes starting at $10 per month
  • Horizontal and vertical scaling with more resources and replicas
  • Serverless like experience with automatic updates and no infrastructure management
  • Provision and manage via UI, API and CLI
  • Out of the box backups and restore
  • Observability and monitoring with real-time logging and metrics
  • Collaborate with a team and configure important RBAC rules
  • Protocols (AMQP, MQTT, HTTP, STOMP, Streams)
  • The most simple, secure and scalable way to deploy RabbitMQ clusters on Kubernetes and DBaaS
  • Automatically connect workloads with secure RabbitMQ connection details & secrets
  • Configure private and public networking dynamically and add optional network security settings

Examples of where RabbitMQ can be used:

  • Application with many components which need to exchange information in a granular and highly controllable way
  • Applications that need a granular control over consistency guarantees or have complex routing requirements
  • IoT applications can make use of the lightweight pub-sub MQTT protocol, optimised for heterogeneous devices in the Internet of Things scenarios
