Messaging at Scale with Open Source

Over the years the open source community has developed a plethora of tools for developing technologies that give software engineers the ability to scale to support thousands, millions or even billions of users. Companies and government agencies alike are transitioning from vendor-based solutions to more transformative and capable open source products.

Messaging is a topic that, like many others, has been dominated by the open source community. Many of these tools provide developers the capability for developing applications that are fault tolerant and scalable.
