Cloud application provider Iron.io released an upgraded version of its message queuing service, IronMQ Enterprise, the company announced this week. The new offering is targeted at large enterprises and carrier-grade workloads.
With the upgrade IronMQ Enterprise includes options for on-premise, private, and hybrid clouds, allowing enterprises to move their clouds behind their firewalls. It also features a more advanced backend persistence layer and improved message throughput and latency.
Iron.io says the new release has a streamlined authentication process and an improved API, and that it can be deployed in horizontally scalable configurations across multiple zones and regions quickly.
“IronMQ has handled billions of messages a month at production scale for customers since 2011,” Travis Reeder, CTO and co-founder of Iron.io said. “This usage has allowed us to translate the needs and demands of cloud developers into a number of technical improvements that far surpass prior generations of messaging solutions. Our work on IronMQ Enterprise eliminates outside dependencies, improves throughput and latency and makes for a high-performance persistent messaging solution than can be deployed in horizontally scalable configurations across multiple zones and regions.”
Iron MQ Enterprise also supports other messaging protocols like Amazon’s SQS to increase cloud compatibility and interoperability and reduce vendor lock-in.
The service is now available for download and evaluation, and a multi-cluster version is planned for release later this summer.
