Build scalability into your applications with cost-effective messaging and notification. Give your cloud-centric applications the flexibility that Internet-scale services require.
SoftLayer Message Queue streamlines intra-application and inter-system communications, giving you more power to scale applications and workflows whenever, however needed.
SoftLayer Message Queue allows a piece of an application or an independent software system to put messages into a queue, where those messages wait for another piece of the application or software system to retrieve and process the message.
Additionally, Message Queue serves as a notification broker, delivering one notification to many other application pieces or independent software systems. The notification is not queued; it is instantly sent to all pieces of an application that are subscribed to receive it.
SoftLayer Message Queue is available for applications running on servers or on any other infrastructure at SoftLayer. The service can be used and accessed by any computer connected to the Internet, and is not bound to one provider or network. This means your messages and notifications are delivered unhindered, regardless of a user's platform or network.
SoftLayer Message Queue is run on a full-featured, easy-to-use REST API, making it a quick and easy option for new and seasoned developers.
Securely view messages and edit queues in the Customer Portal by selecting Message Queue from the Services dropdown menu. From the Message Queue screen, select the Message Queue ID you wish to access to view more details. Once inside, you can also view usage graphs to better help understand how and when Message Queue is being used.
