Amazon MQ

Tim Bain
Amazon announced today a service called Amazon MQ that allows ActiveMQ 5.x
to be run as a managed service in AWS:
https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/aws/amazon-mq-managed-message-broker-service-for-activemq/

Was anyone on this list aware of that effort prior to this announcement?

We should all be aware that there may be additional users coming to
ActiveMQ as a result of this service, who may have minimal experience with
the configuration details of the broker and limited access to detailed
troubleshooting information such as logs and JMX. This may complicate or
delay the eventual sunsetting of 5.x in favor of Artemis; there may be
interest in keeping 5.x alive for longer as a result of its use in this
service.

no one ever had the intention to discontinue 5.x... (or sunsetting
like you said).

Look for instance at tomcat.. they have 3 active versions... that goes
along with other apache projects doing the same.

If you make ActiveMQ Artemis a better project, other users will
benefit from it.. and users would still be welcome to use ActiveMQ
5.x.

I saw that announcement as well and was a bit puzzled by the lack of any
involvement by Amazon in the community (at least that I could tell).  That
is, of course, their prerogative.

Since it's so unclear at this point how this potentially new user-base
might impact the community I don't see how it can factor in to the
road-map.  It may complicate things; it may not.  There may be renewed
interest in 5.x; there may not.  Who's to say?  In my opinion this further
highlights the need to clearly define a project road-map.  If such a
road-map had been defined 6-12 months ago maybe Amazon is making a
different announcement today.

Hi All,

I am planing to switch the in-house running ActiveMQ to the AWS provided
one. I will keep this community informed about the experience in this and
any issues around it. I will also be doing performance testing.

Thanks,
Anuj

In reply to this post by Justin Bertram
I made some inquiries and have it on good authority that the AWS Managed
ActiveMQ effort was started part of the RH partnership [1]. So while the
community was not contacted, AWS did talk to people with ActiveMQ
expertise. Now I am surprised that the RH people on this list didn't
know about it (and given the inquiries I really believe they were not
aware of that). RH is a large company and it looks like opinions
(regarding ActiveMQ) are as diverse as they are in this community.

Related to AWS, this was not a whim, an "it would be nice" sort of
service. They have serious interest from users. There is massive (and
increasing) interest in asynchronous messaging (see also Kafka,
RabbitMQ). People make serious investments in such systems and the
credibility of the community is super important.

I'm not clear on what you're saying.  Are you indicating that Amazon and
Red Hat are partnering on this venture for ActiveMQ 5.x in AWS?

Re: Amazon MQ

Hadrian Zbarcea
What I know is exactly what I said: "effort was started part of the RH
partnership". I know very little about a partnership. The little I know
I cannot disclose and things change all the time anyway.

RH's strategy, like any other business is driven by sales. What I can
tell you for instance that's public information is that the US (and
other) governments are heavy users of ActiveMQ (see USGS Earthquake
Early Warning [1], bottom of page 12 or search for ActiveMQ). You can
imagine that such organizations who make tons of investment in ActiveMQ
are not impressed by claims of 'better architecture' or my 'journaling
system is faster'. It's costs, training, a lot of factors to consider if
you want to be successful (see why even the faster RabbitMQ struggles).
ActiveMQ 5.x is very reliable when configured well. So it's no surprise
that companies like Amazon decide the way they do.

We can talk more about what I see as a path to success and all, but I
think it would be good for you to interact more with other parts of RH.

My $0.02,
Hadrian

Do you have a list of what these companies are, in fact, impressed with?  I
tried to Google for it but it didn't turn up much.

Which parts of Red Hat do I need to interact with more?  Please elaborate.
I need your help here.

Yes, it's hard to get a list, but you know people talk to each other. I
don't have the 'list' but I have knowledge, like many others here.
Companies don't advertise what technologies they use, when, how or why.
And that is true for commercial software as well. For instance, I can
say this, which may or may not be speculation: would it surprise you to
find out that WalMart uses ActiveMQ 5.x and say, Oracle Database 12c?

At ApacheCon in 2009, Mike (tried hard to remember the last name, but I
bet Bruce can tell you) explained how Sabre was successful with ActiveMQ
with 0 (as in ZERO) downtime. 100% availability. Bruce worked with them.
I cannot find the presentation, but I found this slide 11 in Adrian's
presentation [1]. That mentions the FAA as well, a project I may know a
thing or two about (or not, pure speculation). So, every time you think
and you land safely, think of the traffic controllers and ActiveMQ that
plays a part in that process.

So bottom line, you really need to know what you're looking for to find
something on google, uhm bing.

Willing to help and may be able to, but certainly not on this list.

Other thing to elaborate is this. The ASF is not biased towards one
project or another. We want them all to succeed based on their own
merits. That's what ASF members do (or should do, others drop out and
pursue other interests). Also different members have different styles,
something to be mindful of.

There is a narrative going on that some are -1s and stuff like that
which creates distrust and well, doesn't help. You, hear things, see
things, you believe what you want to believe. I will tell you this and I
hope you'll believe it. ASF members are here to help. We try to help all
the projects. If you need help ask for it and you will get it.

To sum it up, think of the power of a 100% uptime in 2.5 years coming
from the Sabre CTO, not some geek, using open source (and in 2009, not
2017). That's what gets a project successful. Bruce is definitely the
guy who can talk more about this. Transitions are also possible and the
names doesn't even matter that much: think MariaDB, Jenkins. It's all
about value.

I'll stop here. Have fun.

Re: Amazon MQ

In reply to this post by Tim Bain
Hi everyone,

I am the product manager for Amazon MQ, and have just joined the list. We
are excited to support ActiveMQ as it has a vibrant developer community and
a large existing user base! The folks on this list have developed a great
product that we are happy to be a part of.

I will also say we did work with many people throughout development, but
their disclosing so would be a violation of their non-disclosure agreement
with Amazon, so that might be why you aren't hearing a lot about it on this
list.

Thanks & best regards,
Trevor
