Introducing IronMQ Enterprise

Cloud-Native Message Queuing Now Available On-Premise

Message Queuing for Public, Private, and Hybrid Clouds
Today we’re excited to release IronMQ Enterprise, our cloud-native message queuing technology for large enterprise and carrier-grade workloads.

IronMQ Enterprise features a more advanced backend persistence layer, improved message throughput and latency, and, for the first time, deployment options for on-premise, private and hybrid cloud configurations. With IronMQ, enterprises can move the power of the cloud behind the firewall.

Since 2011 Iron.io has handled billions of messages each month for production scale customers like AAA, Mentor Graphics, Code for America, Bleacher Report, YouNow, and Hotel Tonight. Our largest customers transmit millions of messages and process tens of thousands of compute hours daily, making Iron.io one of the largest cloud message queuing and asyc processing platforms available today.

Building on this experience has allowed us to improve on previous generations of messaging solutions. IronMQ Enterprise is the result of a major upgrade in the backend persistence layer by using a highly performant embeddable key/value database. The new release also benefits from streamlined authentication access and an improved API. In addition, IronMQ Enterprise eliminates outside dependencies, creating an exceptionally tight, carrier-grade messaging solution than can be quickly deployed in horizontally scalable configurations across multiple zones and regions.


Critical Cloud Messaging Features

IronMQ delivers advanced messaging options including push queues and long-polling along with simple and secure access using HTTP/REST APIs and OAuth authentication. Built to be distributed across multiple availability zones and geographic regions, IronMQ provides reliable message delivery and fault tolerance through message persistence, redundant systems, and automated failover. Additional features include advanced real-time monitoring, message retries, error queues, and queue triggers. IronMQ Enterprise also provides improved gateways for supporting other messaging protocols including Amazon’s SQS messaging protocol and OpenStack’s Marconi project, increasing cloud compatibility and interoperability and reducing vendor lock-in.

Public, Private, and Hybrid Clouds

Introducing IronMQ’s on-premise availability is a huge step for us as a company and technology, making Iron.io the only message queue provider with high-availability services for public, private, and hybrid clouds. IronMQ Enterprise now gives organizations more options when creating more responsive, scalable, and fault-tolerant systems using readily accessible cloud technologies. Single datacenter, multi-datacenter, and carrier grade options are available and can include managed hosting and 24/7 global support options.
