Powering Scalable Apps
Iron.io gives you immediate access to highly available message queues and async task processing. Go from development to production in minutes. Never worry about reliability, availabilty, or scalability ever again.
What is a Message Queue?
Message queues are the bonds that tie distributed architectures together. They’re used to transmit data between the component parts of the architecture. The general concept is that chunks of data (messages) are put into a group (a queue) and then removed from that group in a predefined order, most often on FIFO (first in first out) basis but also sometimes on a FILO (first in last out) basis.
Why Use a Worker System?
Worker systems provide the muscle in multi-tier distributed systems. Workers generally provide for custom-built environments that only survive for the duration of the task. Then the environment is destroyed, and rebuilt for the next task. The benefit of workers are their flexibility. Because they’re highly reproducible and self-contained, workers can be scaled effortlessly across VMs to meet demand.
