Amazon MQ

Fully managed service for open source message brokers

Amazon MQ is a managed message broker service for Apache ActiveMQ and RabbitMQ that makes it easy to set up and operate message brokers on Amazon Web Services. Amazon MQ reduces your operational responsibilities by managing the provisioning, setup, and maintenance of message brokers for you. Because Amazon MQ connects to your current applications with industry-standard APIs and protocols, you can easily migrate to Amazon Web Services without having to rewrite code.


Migrate quickly

Connecting your current applications to Amazon MQ is easy because it uses industry-standard APIs and protocols for messaging, including JMS, NMS, AMQP 1.0 and 0-9-1, STOMP, MQTT, and WebSocket. This enables you to move from any message broker that uses these standards to Amazon MQ by simply updating the endpoints of your applications to connect to Amazon MQ.

Offload operational responsibilities

Amazon MQ manages the administration and maintenance of message brokers and automatically provisions infrastructure for high availability. There is no need to provision hardware or install and maintain software and Amazon MQ automatically manages tasks such as software upgrades, security updates, and failure detection and recovery.


Durable messaging made easy

Amazon MQ is automatically provisioned for high availability and message durability when you connect your message brokers. Amazon MQ stores messages redundantly across multiple Availability Zones (AZ) within an Amazon Web Service region and will continue to be available if a component or AZ fails.
