Scaling Real-time Apps on Cloud Foundry Using Node.js and RabbitMQ

by January 31, 2013

In the previous blog Scaling Real-time Apps on Cloud Foundry Using Node.js and Redis, we used Redis as a ‘session store’ and also as a ‘pub-sub’ service for chat messages. But in many enterprise grade real-time apps, you may want to use RabbitMQ instead of Redis to do pub-sub because of the reliability and features that comes out-of-the-box in RabbitMQ. This is especially true for financial or Bank apps like Stock Quote apps where it is critical to protect and deliver each-and-every message AND do it as quickly as possible.
So, in this blog, we will start from Scaling Real-time Apps on Cloud Foundry Using Node.js and Redis and simply replace Redis with RabbitMQ pubsub.
