Deploy RabbitMQ

RabbitMQ is an open-source message broker that facilitates the efficient transfer of data between applications and services. Its robust messaging system allows for the decoupling of data producers and consumers, ensuring data flows smoothly and reliably. RabbitMQ is available in the Voltmetrix Platform.
