Asynchronous message queueing is often a requirement of high-reliability
applications (e.g., funds transfer). It provides guaranteed delivery and the
ability of one side of a connection to continue operating when the other
side is not available for synchronous messaging. It's like having voicemail
as a backup when you cannot reach another person. It's also used when load
balancing is required.
