In short I am using a persistent queue as a way to stretch scalability of a

My initial use case is this:

I would like to queue 1million persistent&durable messages per minute. 
This 1 million represents 1 million separate conversations(Queues?) at 1 msg
per minute (or 16.6KTransactions per second)... My plan is to Federate 5
Brokers to get ~3KTPS per broker which is reasonable for most disks. (I
assume I can also Federate 5 Clusters of 2 brokers for redundant copies of

A Worker (that is an exclusive consumer of a given Queue) will take each
message in a conversation and roll it up in to an hourly product that will
be persisted to a DB. I will use 2PC to simultaneously commit the hourly
product to a DB and delete the hours worth of messages out of the Queue. 
Concurrently with every new message arriving at the worker, I will be
updating the product (in memory only) and make it available via

In this way processing 1 Million Msgs per minute is only writing to a DB
1M/3600~~280TPS (assuming perfectly staggered), also real time products are
available, and there is always a persistent copy in case of failure.

So does this sort of thing seem reasonable?
