Simple Ruby Workers with MongoDB and Resque

After some research, we decided to use resque from github, but to adapt it to use mongodb instead of redis. The advantage here is that we already have a significant investment in mongodb, so we would not be introducing a new type of server to our infrastructure. Mongodb also has some features that redis does not, and we used those to build some interesting new features into resque.

After reading the post, I couldn’t identify those additional MongoDB features mentioned above. But I do agree you shouldn’t bring in new infrastructure requirements with every new tools you are using. Very heterogeneous platforms are difficult and expensive to maintain.
