Today we make a new high performance plan available for the public, Awesome Ape. We've had customers with very high message rate requirements running it for a while.

If you create this plan in AWS it's two c3.xlarge instances with 7GB memory and 4 high performance cores underneath. In GCE it's two n1-highcpu-8 instances, also with 7GB memory but 8 cores(!). In DigitalOcean this plan is two 16GB instances with 8 cores.

Awesome Ape

Our own benchmarks shows that you can reach about 50.000 messages per second throughput with this plan, with one queue, one publisher and one customer.

Please email us at if you have any suggestions or feedback.
