You can now right-size your message broker by modifying the instance type on demand. Instance type changes can be applied immediately or during the next maintenance window. Vertically scaling your message broker provides flexibility to adjust for seasonal changes and increase capacity as your application grows. 

Amazon MQ is a managed message broker service for Apache ActiveMQ that makes it easy to set up and operate message brokers in the cloud. Message brokers allow different software systems–often using different programming languages, and on different platforms–to communicate and exchange information. With Amazon MQ, you can use industry standard APIs and protocols for messaging, including JMS, NMS, AMQP, STOMP, MQTT, and WebSocket. You can easily move from any message broker that uses these standards to Amazon MQ because you don’t have to rewrite any messaging code in your applications.

Vertical scaling is now available in all AWS regions where Amazon MQ is available. To learn more see the Amazon MQ Developer Guide.
