Meltwater is Sponsoring Stretch Conference 2016

Meltwater is very happy to be Bronze sponsor for Stretch Conference 2016, which will take place in Budapest on December 1st/2nd.

After a big group from Meltwater visited Craft Conference earlier this year, we were excited to see that the same organizers were hosting a leadership & management conference as well, so sponsoring the event was only logical for us.

With Rona Steinr├╝cken & Ola Sundin we also have speakers from Meltwater at the event, which will make it even more fun for us to attend the conference to cheer for them. :)

Meetup: Monitoring your AWS Costs

On August 16th, we hosted the AWS User Group Meetup in the Meltwater Berlin Office. It was our first time hosting the AWS meetup and we would like to share with you what the meetup talks were about and also our experience in hosting a meetup in our Berlin office.

Getting the most out of your RabbitMQ cluster

At Meltwater we use RabbitMQ for messaging. We have several clusters and had a need for a new cluster. This made us ask the question: how is the message rate affected by the hardware chosen for the cluster? Should we go for more CPU cores? Or maybe faster disks? Are there other things to consider to get the best performance out of RabbitMQ? This blog post tries to answer those questions.
