What is VMware RabbitMQ OCI

Welcome to VMware RabbitMQ OCI documentation. The VMware RabbitMQ OCI offering is VMware's standalone OCI image. This container image includes the popular Open Source RabbitMQ (but without the operators) messaging and streaming solution, the Erlang runtime, and other dependencies as well as commercial plugins.

It is important to note that this VMware RabbitMQ solution should really only be used if you don't have a Kubernetes environment available or you are using non-Kubernetes container orchestration. VMware's first choice solution is the Kubernetes operator for RabbitMQ, which offers complete management of RabbitMQ clusters. Go to VMware RabbitMQ for Kubernetes and VMware RabbitMQ for Kubernetes Documentation for more information.

While the VMware RabbitMQ OCI offering in many ways is a less convenient approach, it is possible to use this standalone OCI image in situations that require it such as if you want to run a standalone VMware RabbitMQ or a small RabbitMQ cluster using multiple containers. It allows for a quick and lightweight deployment.
