RabbitMQ for PCF

Messaging - The Essential Connection Between Cloud-Native Applications

RabbitMQ for PCF allows developers to easily connect distributed applications using the robust messaging capabilities of RabbitMQ—the most widely deployed open source message broker. Developers can simplify connections between applications, deploy more scalable systems, and ship faster.

Provide Self-Service Access to Developers

Developers dynamically provision RabbitMQ instances to meet the messaging requirements of cloud-native applications. Extensive client languages enable easy connections to off platform and migrated applications.

Support Entire Cloud-Native Developer Organizations

Take advantage of significant automation for operator and developer lifecycles. Easily install, manage, monitor, and update RabbitMQ for PCF. Ensure deployments meet enterprise requirements.

Enable Connected Scalable, Distributed Applications

Reduce architectural complexity and deploy & manage resilient, scalable cloud-native applications running on Pivotal Cloud Foundry.

RabbitMQ Overview

RabbitMQ is the most widely deployed open source message broker, with more than 35,000 product deployments worldwide. Companies ranging from small startups to large enterprises depend on RabbitMQ for their distributed application messaging. RabbitMQ provides: asynchronous messaging in multiple protocols, easy deployment and support for all popular programming languages, clustered deployments for high availability and throughput, enterprise-grade, cloud-ready security and high availability, management and monitoring capabilities, and plug-ins easily extend RabbitMQ capabilities.

Integration Features

Deploy two types of service plans:

  • Pre-provisioned multi-tenant clusters of RabbitMQ provide fast access to vhosts on-demand to developers. Use these plans to provide controlled access to resilient and high-throughput clusters, such as to support Spring Cloud Services.
  • On-demand single node, or clusters of RabbitMQ, can be easily created by developers to efficiently match resources to application needs for throughput, availability or resilience, and to provide isolation.

Availability:

  • Deploy a RabbitMQ HAproxy as front end to applications to provide load balancing and increased messaging throughput with pre-provisioned clusters.
  • Replicating queues and exchanges increase message resilience in case of node failure.
  • Further increase resilience by allowing applications to failover between redundant RabbitMQ HAproxies with pre-provisioned clusters.
  • Deploy RabbitMQ nodes across multiple availability zones to increase resilience and fault tolerance.

Security:

  • RabbitMQ for PCF can be configured to provide encrypted communication in multi-tenant deployments.
  • Separate access for operators and developers is automatically configured on service instance creation.
  • New updates for RabbitMQ for PCF with fixes are quickly released when CVEs and other security vulnerabilities are discovered in components.
  • Fast and simple Operating System patching with critical fixes available quickly.

Operations & management:

  • Resource utilization of plans can be tailored by operators to meet needs of application developers.
  • Developers and operators can access dedicated nodes and clusters with the RabbitMQ management dashboard.
  • RabbitMQ service instances can be configured to trigger alerts to developers and operators.
  • Tile and service instance events and metrics are piped to the Loggregator logging system to integrate with existing Pivotal Cloud Foundry monitoring and alerting.
  • On-demand service deployment includes automated smoke tests that check for successful deployments of service instances so developers can be confident that successful deployments work as expected.


How it Works

Operators download the service and install on their Pivotal Cloud Foundry deployments. Once the service is successfully installed and configured, the service is made available to developers through the Service Marketplace.

  • RabbitMQ for PCF offers on-demand, isolated, cluster plans and pre-provisioned multi-node RabbitMQ Clusters.
  • The On-Demand plans are operator-configured and enabled. Once enabled, application developers can easily provision their own RabbitMQ nodes and clusters from these plans. Application developers can choose to make their queues highly available by mirroring them at declaration and spanning them across multiple availability zones.
  • Pre-provisioned multi-node clusters are operator configured and deployed. Once provisioned, application developers can create service instances which access a cluster via RabbitMQ virtual hosts. Application developers can choose to make their queues highly available by mirroring them at declaration, or an Operator may apply a cluster wide HA policy.
  • Developers can create and destroy service instances and bind and unbind them to their applications via the App Manager or CF CLI.
  • Operators can automatically update all deployed service instances to the latest version of software when updating RabbitMQ for PCF to a new version.

The RabbitMQ for PCF service is available on the Pivotal Network.
