|IronMQ is now available in Europe|
IronMQ offers two endpoints in Europe – AWS EU-West and Rackspace-LON. These endpoints join services in AWS US-East (N.Virginia) and Rackspace-Ord (Chicago). Switching regions and clouds is as simple as changing endpoints within messaging clients and can be accomplished on the fly.
IronMQ is one of the leading messaging queuing services in the cloud and provides developers with an easy and reliable way to create distributed applications and operate at scale. Customers are using IronMQ to create service-oriented architectures, process streaming data, connect mobile apps, sync with legacy systems, and handle other core messaging and event-handling needs.
Reduced Message Latency + European Data Locality
The API servers, MQ servers, and data persistence layer for IronMQ EU all run in European datacenters. IronMQ EU is running the most current release of IronMQ and will continue to do so on the same schedule as Iron.io’s US-based datacenters.
Features available in IronMQ EU include one-time guaranteed delivery (no duplicate messages), secure OAuth gateways, HTTP/REST access, FIFO (first-in, first-out), push queues, multiple language bindings, and more.
Reduced message latency and European data locality are the biggest drivers for our push to launch IronMQ in Europe. It’s important that applications running in Europe avoid the cost of transmitting messages to and from US regions. This release answers these needs and provides startups and production-scale applications with easy and reliable access to state-of-the-art message queuing services.

Connecting to IronMQ EU
IronMQ also has support for a growing number of application frameworks via third-party integrations. These include bindings for Laravel, Drupal, Celery, Yii, .NET Framework, and others. Use of these frameworks with IronMQ EU is also a matter specifying the appropriate endpoints within the configuration files.
