RabbitMQ Consulting Services

The Standard for Enterprise Messaging

Over the last few years RabbitMQ has become the most popular, fully featured, Enterprise Messaging system there is, and for good reason. Based on the AMQP open standard, Rabbit provides a rich feature-set which, until recently, was only available to organisations able to afford correspondingly rich licence fees.rabbitmqlogonostrap

Rabbit comes with an open source license and is free to download and even customise, although it’s been built with a plug-in architecture so that customization is rarely necessary.

While Rabbit was developed with simplicity and ease of use in mind, there are a whole suite of use cases that, although complex, can bring significant enhancements to the robustness and performance of applications and distributed systems. LShift have extensive experience helping organizations implement RabbitMQ in demanding environments and we can probably help smooth your path through your implementation.

Since Rabbit was acquired by VMware/EMC, you have the added assurance of a long-term commitment to ongoing support and improvements of the core product.


LShift were the original authors of RabbitMQ and developed it to improve the standardization of messaging across our clients’ systems. This grew as an extension of our client work developing and integrating software across many different industries and technologies. The core product is now maintained and developed by the VMware/EMC team and our RabbitMQ focus has now turned to the design and build of organizations that are using it in their own, perhaps non-standard, ways.

We’ve completed many different types of projects using Rabbit; from design and proof-of-concept through to international deployments with some of the world’s largest companies.

LShift’s engineers are focused on working directly with clients. All our developers have skills across many programming languages and can deliver complete projects to speed up your delivery cycle, or work with your team adding capabilities
in this specialist area.

RabbitMQ Bigwig

LShift also manage the operation of RabbitMQ as a service in the cloud as an add-on to a number of PaaS environments:

You can use these environments to gain the benefits Rabbit can bring to your architecture without having to install and maintain RabbitMQ yourself and there is free tier on each for you to use as a sandbox before going into production.
