Hey friend,

While we do not have anything planned for this at the moment, a lot of our customers do prefer open source solutions to this very problem, as well as run them on our platform. If you were to spin up a Ubuntu 18 droplet with us, you could install RabbitMQ (just one very popular option) using a tutorial like this:


I’d like to see DigitalOcean’s queue service as well! Nowadays it’s commonly used task.

I found this post looking for a solution in digitalocean as AWS has with SQS triggers. The problem of queue IMHO is the speed that you can empty the queue. And with AWS SQS you can grow the triggers easy. If I need to use RabbitMQ I need to grow in vertical mode some droplets to run the workers to process the queue results, I don’t know another way to resolve this problem.

Does someone have any idea to resolve it?

Thank you.

You can use amazon SQS from a digital ocean droplet! You just use boto3 (in python), authenticate with your AWS keys, and use as normal.
