Businesses operating in the contemporary digital marketplace often manage large amounts of data every day, and manage a large network infrastructure to process it. This often means a number of applications, systems and services written in different languages or implemented on different platforms. 

Managing these complex systems requires a Message Broker to translate formal messaging protocols between them. To manage these message brokers and the infrastructure beneath them, managers known as “MQs” have become increasingly popular. 

Like anything else in your data infrastructure, things need to be constantly updated and optimized, and the same is true of MQs.

How does Amazon MQ work?

Amazon MQ improves upon other popular MQ options in a number of areas. By instituting a well-architected AWS infrastructure, message brokers (as well as other programs and services) are constantly updated, optimized and secure. 

With durable message brokers, your system will suffer little slow down, even with high amounts of traffic. And if you’re used to using ActiveMQ instead, Amazon MQ can be easily integrated. It’s also flexible to a number of industry-standard APIs and messaging protocols, like JMS, NMS, AMQP, STOMP, MQTT, and WebSocket. 

Because you don’t have to rewrite any of the messaging code in your applications, Amazon MQ is a fantastic solution for IT heads looking to consolidate their existing management strategy into a faster, more accessible package.
