Announcing IronMQ Enterprise


The only cloud-native message queue solution available for public, private, and hybrid clouds


Ready

Ready To Use

Connect to IronMQ endpoints and you’re ready to create queues for sending and receiving messages. Perfect for doing more things asynchronously.

Available

High Availability

Runs on top cloud infrastructures and uses multiple high-availability data centers. Uses reliable datastores for message durability and persistence.

Features

Enhanced Features

Supports a rich set of features including Push Queues, Error Queues, Alerts and Triggers, an advanced Dashboard, and more.

Reliable

Reliable

IronMQ can be configured for auto DNS failover in case of an outage to ensure your message queue is always running smooth.

Secure

Secure

Uses HTTPS and SSL to provide secure gateways for managing queues and handling messages. OAuth provides flexibility, scalability, and security.

Scalable

Scalable

Written with elasticity and scale at its core. Built using Go, a high-performance language designed for concurrency. Runs on industrial-strength clouds.

Http

HTTP/REST-Based

Uses HTTP/REST-based APIs for simple and efficient cloud use. Built with MQ standards in mind, which means no lock-in and maximum flexibility.

Language

Multiple Languages

Make use of a large set of IronMQ language libraries including Ruby, PHP, Python, Java, Go, .NET, Node.js, and more. Also supports Beanstalkd interfaces.

Fifo

One-Time FIFO Delivery

IronMQ makes sure messages get delivered once and only once and in the order queued – essential requirements for critical messaging needs.



How It Works



Connect your applications and processes with an elastic message queue. Decouple your processes and create a highly scalable system by passing messages.


Configure
Create
Post
Get
Delete

Configure Your Client

Once you create an account with Iron.io, you can retrieve your project token and ID from your dashboard. Get a client library for whichever language you are using to connect to the IronMQ API.

Create a Queue

Create a queue for posting messages either directly from your application or through your dashboard. You can choose between a push queue or a pull queue.

Post a Message

Post messages from your application to your named queue. All the Iron.io APIs are REST-based with JSON bodies and use OAuth2 for authentication.

Get a Message

Subscribers get messages from a queue based on the type of queue. Subscribers can be HTTP endpoints, webhooks, another IronMQ queue, or an IronWorker worker.

Delete a Message

Once you get a message from a queue and process the contents, you need to delete the message to ensure that the message is processed only once.




We Speak Your Language

We provide client libraries for just about every language and framework to make working with IronMQ easy and familiar.
