RoQ is the first implementation of EQS(Elastic Queue Service), a new architecture designed Message-oriented middleware for efficient messaging in the cloud.
Traditionally, Message-oriented middlewares are not designed to support elastic scaling. This means that in a cloud context, they may very quickly become a bottleneck in terms of performance.
RoQ has been designed to answer this problem elasticity and scalability. This includes three properties:
• When required, the capacity of the system will be increased automatically
• This capacity increase has no impact on the global performance:
• When the load decreases, the system will scale down to avoid using unnecessary resources
RoQ started as a research project within EURA NOVA and has since then evolved into an open-source project.
