To achieve high availability for your Amazon MQ brokers, it is essential to configure them to use the active/standby deployment mode. In this mode, two broker instances are set up in a redundant pair, with one instance configured as the active broker and the other as the standby broker. To implement this model, the AWS MQ service deploys one broker instance in one Availability Zone (AZ) and another standby broker instance in a different AZ. These broker instances are set up to communicate with your web application, with each other, and with a shared AWS storage location. By using the active/standby deployment mode, you can achieve high availability for your Amazon MQ brokers, as the service provides automatic failover capability. This is in contrast to the default single-broker mode, which provides no such failover capabilities. Therefore, it is important to ensure that the active/standby deployment mode is enabled for your Amazon MQ brokers to ensure maximum availability and reliability.
To ensure that your Amazon MQ brokers are using the active/standby deployment mode for high availability, you can follow these steps:
By following these steps, you can ensure that your Amazon MQ brokers are using the active/standby deployment mode for high availability. This will provide automatic failover capabilities and increase the reliability of your Amazon MQ brokers.
