Welcome to VMware RabbitMQ documentation. Learn how to use VMware RabbitMQ product offerings to provide highly automated messaging and streaming services with this documentation. Use the navigation on the left to browse through documentation for each of these offerings. Note, VMware RabbitMQ was formerly known as VMware Tanzu RabbitMQ.

What is VMware RabbitMQ

VMware RabbitMQ is the easiest and quickest way to get a "production ready" RabbitMQ cluster. Built from the open source RabbitMQ product, the commercial "secure by default" VMware RabbitMQ product offerings provide exclusive features including Warm Standby Replication (mult-site replication for the business community) and Intra-cluster Compression (compression for cost savings on network usage). Support is provided 24/7 by RabbitMQ engineers as well as an extended support lifecycle. VMware RabbitMQ includes these product offerings: VMware RabbitMQ for Kubernetes, VMware RabbitMQ OCI, VMware RabbitMQ OVA, and VMware RabbitMQ for Tanzu Application Service.

How to Use VMware RabbitMQ Documentation

VMware RabbitMQ includes documentation sets for the following VMware RabbitMQ product offerings. Also included at the end of this list are links to Open Source RabbitMQ documentation.

The VMware RabbitMQ for Kubernetes, OCI, OVA, and Tanzu Application Service documentation sets in HTML reflect the latest update release of each VMware RabbitMQ for Kubernetes, VMware RabbitMQ OVA, VMware RabbitMQ OCI, and VMware RabbitMQ for Tanzu Application Service version. For example, the VMware RabbitMQ for Kubernetes version 1.5 documentation contains updates for all 1.5.x releases.

For detailed information about what is included in a specific release, it is recommended to review the Release Notes first to find out more about the latest released features, functions, and packages included in the release. The Release Notes also include information about all previous releases.

All our documentation also comes in PDF format, which you can access by selecting the Download PDF icon on any page in the HTML documentation. Documentation that has ended General Support is only available in PDF format from the navigation on the left.

If you are logged in to docs.vmware.com with your VMware Customer Connect account, you can use MyLibrary to create custom documentation collections that contain only the content that meets your specific information needs.
