Not sure about this. It looks like "we can do ZeroMQ better", and yet
they stay away from mentioning ZeroMQ as a competitor (as did Martin
in his Strange Loop talk). I mean, how can you say "open source high
performance messaging" and then use AMQP and JMS as your comparison

Much of the argumentation for Aeron is straight from the ZeroMQ
playbook. "The best way to place Aeron in your mental matrix might be
as a message oriented replacement for TCP, with higher level services
written on top."

Also I'm confused as whether this is a layer 4 protocol or a Java
library. If it's a protocol, how does it compare to PGM or NORM?

On the other hand, the more choices for distributed systems the better.
