"Sidekiq let us stop worrying about queues and focus on our app. Half a billion jobs later and it's holding up great."

More reliable message processing.
Cloud environments are noisy and unreliable. Seeing timeouts? Wild swings in latency or performance? Ruby VM crashes or processes disappearing?
If a Sidekiq process crashes while processing a job, that job is lost.
If the Sidekiq client gets a networking error while pushing a job to Redis, an exception is raised and the job is not delivered.
Sidekiq Pro uses Redis's RPOPLPUSH command to ensure that jobs will not be lost if the process crashes or gets a KILL signal.
The Sidekiq Pro client can withstand transient Redis outages or timeouts. It will enqueue jobs locally upon error and attempt to deliver those jobs once connectivity is restored.
Group jobs into a set and follow their progress.
Create a set of jobs which can be tracked as a group, programmatically or within the Sidekiq Web interface. You can see success and failure counts along with error information for failed jobs within the batch.
Batches can fire a callback when all jobs are complete, allowing much more complex job workflows than Sidekiq.
