You sure about stability?
Sending 50Mb at high rate makes RabbitMQ very unhappy (lot of crashes and messages lost).

One of your guys suggested the idea of splitting the data. And he was right ;-)

That's what we can't afford to have. RAM is limited and we had to deal with millions of very big messages.
Hope this help.
