Iron.io Increases Message Size in IronMQ


Message Size Increases from 64KB to 256KB

Large message sizes are now available within IronMQ. We have increased the message size from 64KB to 256KB.

This increase was originally in response to some uses cases around XML but also allows the service to handle almost every need possible when it comes to messaging. The increased sizes are available on Developer plans and above.

To try IronMQ for free, sign up for an account at Iron.io. You can also contact our sales team if you have any questions on high-volume use or on-premise installations.


Note that it’s a good design practice to pass IDs in message payloads when dealing with large blocks of data such as images and files. You can put them in IronCache which has a maximum size of 1MB or something like AWS S3 and then pass the key as part of the message.
