What is IBM MQ on Cloud?

MQ is the gold standard for enterprise messaging, providing security-rich and reliable messaging on premises and across multiple clouds.

IBM MQ on Cloud features

Managed for you

Wide language and platform support, enabling your administrators to adapt infrastructure to business need and giving your developers the freedom to build applications without worry.

Security-rich message delivery

Enabled for multicloud

Multiple clouds, platforms and orchestrations usually require multiple APIs. But for multicloud connectivity with IBM MQ on Cloud, you need only a single, standard API.

Two ways you can use IBM MQ on Cloud

You need to make on-premises information available in the cloud

Your company uses a mobile app on the cloud to facilitate e-commerce transactions.

IBM MQ on Cloud connects the on-premises stock system with the consumer application to give users real-time information about what products are available.

You need to connect applications hosted in different locations

Your company hosts its core IT systems in San Francisco, but packages are processed in a depot in London.

MQ on Cloud reliably transmits messages from one location to another. It lets the London office encrypt "send" data about every package that needs to be tracked, and it lets the San Francisco office receive and process that information more securely. Both offices can trust that information won’t be lost.
