"Sidekiq is the first tool I reach for in new apps—and the last one I have to tune when they grow to demand massive data processing."

Key Features

Rate Limiting

Slow your roll, speed demon!

With the Rate Limiting API, you select the style of limiting and set the threshold. Your code will pause or retry later if it exceeds the specified rate limits.

Periodic Jobs

Cron jobs made easy

Cron jobs are quite common in server applications but they're painful to debug and make for a single point of failure.

With Sidekiq Enterprise, periodic jobs become simple to create and easy to debug. No more fighting Unix paths, permissions and bash. No more special machine devoted to cron; instead your periodic jobs scale across all your Sidekiq processes.


Keep your customer-sensitive data secret

Sometimes jobs will need sensitive data and regulations require protecting that data when at rest. Sidekiq Enterprise can transparently encrypt and decrypt sensitive data in your jobs.
