RabbitMQ is described as 'complete and highly reliable enterprise messaging system based on the emerging AMQP standard'. There are more than 10 alternatives to RabbitMQ for a variety of platforms, including Linux, Windows, Mac, Online / Web-based and BSD. The best alternative is mosquitto, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like RabbitMQ are ActiveMQ (Free, Open Source), Zenaton (Freemium), ØMQ (Free, Open Source) and nanomsg (Free, Open Source).
Eclipse Mosquitto is an open source (EPL/EDL licensed) message broker that implements the MQTT protocol versions 5.0, 3.1.1 and 3.1. Mosquitto is lightweight and is suitable for use on all devices from low power single board computers to full servers.
ØMQ is a high-performance asynchronous messaging library aimed at use in scalable distributed or concurrent applications. It provides a message queue, but unlike message-oriented middleware, a ØMQ system can run without a dedicated message broker.
nanomsg is a socket library that provides several common communication patterns. It aims to make the networking layer fast, scalable, and easy to use. Implemented in C, it works on a wide range of operating systems with no further dependencies.
Simple, robust message queue as a service, that requires absolutely no setup as it works over HTTPS! Simply prefix ANY https request with ralley.to/ and we’ll queue, and then forward the request with the exact same method/body/headers/parameters.

pros, cons and recent comments
calum It works great with serverless, and allows you to easily run delayed or scheduled jobs. It also has a great console to re-process records when stuff errors.
