Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"There is no setup just some easy configuration required.""The libraries that connect and manage the queues are rich in features.""The most valuable feature of Amazon SQS is the interface.""I appreciate that Amazon SQS is fully integrated with Amazon and can be accessed through normal functions or serverless functions, making it very user-friendly. Additionally, the features are comparable to those of other solutions.""I am able to find out what's going on very easily."

"Messaging and queueing solution that has good stability and scalability. It can be used for a variety of messaging types.""The most valuable feature of Anypoint MQ is it comes with MuleSoft so we don't have to maintain separate components.""Initial setup was very straightforward. Deployment is a cakewalk.""It's easy to use and comes as a bundle package with the Anypoint Platform, removing the need for any complex setup."

More Anypoint MQ Pros →

"The initial setup of Amazon SQS is in the middle range of difficulty. You need to learn Amazon AWS and know how to navigate, create resources, and structures, and provide rules.""As a company that uses IBM solutions, it's difficult to compare Amazon SQS to other solutions. We have been using IBM solutions for a long time and they are very mature in integration and queuing. In my role as an integration manager, I can say that Amazon SQS is designed primarily for use within the Amazon ecosystem and does not have the same level of functionality as IBM MQ or other similar products. It has limited connectivity options and does not easily integrate with legacy systems.""The solution is not available on-premises so that rules out any customers looking for the messaging solution on-premises.""Be cautious around pay-as-you-use licensing as costs can become expensive.""It would be easier to have a dashboard that allows us to see everything and manage everything since we have so many queues."

More Amazon SQS Cons →

"Anypoint MQ could improve the user interface.""There are so many solutions like this, but this is not as mature as those products. The other MQ products have the capability of reprocessing and maintaining the persistence of the data. They can handle large volumes and large messages, but Anypoint MQ doesn't have those capabilities.""It's extremely expensive to change things in Anypoint MQ. There's also this issue of slow output of messages, and that needs to be improved.""Anypoint MQ's capabilities are mainly used for messaging purposes, but it doesn't have typical use cases that extend as far as other Message Queue software."

    Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS) is a fully managed message queuing service that enables you to decouple and scale microservices, distributed systems, and serverless applications. SQS eliminates the complexity and overhead associated with managing and operating message oriented middleware, and empowers developers to focus on differentiating work. Using SQS, you can send, store, and receive messages between software components at any volume, without losing messages or requiring other services to be available. Get started with SQS in minutes using the AWS console, Command Line Interface or SDK of your choice, and three simple commands.

    SQS offers two types of message queues. Standard queues offer maximum throughput, best-effort ordering, and at-least-once delivery. SQS FIFO queues are designed to guarantee that messages are processed exactly once, in the exact order that they are sent.

    Anypoint MQ is an enterprise multi-tenant, cloud messaging service that performs advanced asynchronous messaging scenarios between applications. Anypoint MQ is fully integrated with Anypoint Platform, offering role based access control, client application management, and connectors.

    Anypoint MQ supports hybrid use cases, IoT where you collect data from different devices, and a REST API you can use with device applications. You can also use Anypoint MQ with other application frameworks such as node.js, to communicate to queues.
