RabbitMQ is an AMQP server that exchanges messages within a vCloud Director environment. You can install and configure up to three RabbitMQ servers on CentOS hosts. For high availability and scalability purposes, you can configure the RabbitMQ servers in a cluster.

About this task


If you have RabbitMQ already installed, make sure that the host is configured to support SSL connections.

For test and development environments, you can have RabbitMQ run in a Docker container instead. For more information, see Deploy Cassandra and RabbitMQ as Containers for Test and Development Environments in the vCloud Availability for vCloud Director Installation and Configuration Guide.
