    An alternative to Celery is RQ, but it has similar problems and requires running Redis along with a separate worker process.

  • (Probably n00b question) Best way to run a Redis Queue? | 2021-05-11
    This is probably a dumb question but I haven't relevant info on this. I have a Flask app that uses Redis Queues. This has been running on a normal server and I've been tasked with migrating it to AWS. I've been reading up on SQS but we do not want to modify our existing integration of Redis Queues, so what would be the best way to run Redis Queue workers on AWS? My best guess was using ElasticCache to run the redis instance and run the workers in an EC2 instance, but wouldnt this eat up EC2 resources innefficiently?

    that sounds like job queue. maybe Python Redis Queue
  • Ask HN: Cost efficient redis queue hosting | 2021-04-06
    I am heavily using redis queue ( ) which works like a charm.

    My issue is that the jobs usually come in batches and should be processed in a somewhat timely manner. Each job needs roughly 2GB peak RAM and some cpu cycles.

    My question now is: How can I host this as cost efficient as possible? Something like google cloud run would be ideal but I'd really like to avoid migrating my perfectly working queue to googles' proprietary solution.

    Right now I have a couple of small VPS which are idling 70% of the time.

    Ideally would be a service that lets me deploy a docker container and only charge for used RAM and CPU cycles. Does this exist?

    5) Also, how long it will run and what'll happen if multiple people submit files at the same time. Using task queue is what's commonly done to address that. For example RQ - python task queue backed by Redis. By using it you can store task ID somewhere and give user a link with promise "It'll be done soon, wait for it". You may have seen some sort of this technique in the internet.
