RED HAT JBOSS A-MQ COMPARED WITH IBM WEBSPHERE MQ 7.5

The ability to integrate systems and share data across the enterprise is a common datacenter
need. Shared data needs to be transported between endpoints, and in today’s connected world
we assume the capability to reliably move data is ever-present.
That is a compliment to messaging platforms like Red Hat® JBoss® A-MQ. Messaging gets data
from point to point in a way that appears seamless to end users. However, smooth system integration
is no accident. When done correctly, reliably, and in an economical fashion, architects and
developers must consider many messaging options.
Red Hat offers multiple products that help customers meet their enterprise messaging needs.
Red Hat JBoss A-MQ is one of those products and the focus of this competitive brief.
IBM also offers multiple enterprise messaging products.1 Some products, such as WebSphere
MQ Managed File Transfer Edition2, and WebSphere MQ Telemetry3 work with and enhance other
IBM messaging products. For example, IBM WebSphere MQ can be enhanced with WebSphere
MQ Managed File Transfer Edition. This brief compares Red Hat JBoss A-MQ specifically with IBM
WebSphere MQ version 7.5.
