With plugins, you can in principal add your own storage mechanism. We are developing a few example plugins with different storage mechanisms, to help you when you develop yours.

For example, you can in principal keep your queue in a highly available distributed store. This might help you get high availability, but it is certainly not everything you will need.

That said, what do you want to achieve with a different storage mechanism?
