We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The solution is easy to scale and cost-effective.""I am able to find out what's going on very easily.""There is no setup just some easy configuration required.""The most valuable feature of Amazon SQS is the interface."

More Amazon SQS Pros →

"The most valuable feature is stability.""This product is well adopted on the OpenShift platform. For organizations like ours that use OpenShift for many of our products, this is a good feature.""The most valuable feature for us is the operator-based automation that is provided by Streams for infrastructure as well as user and topic management. This saves a lot of time and effort on our part to provide infrastructure. For example, the deployment of infrastructure is reduced from approximately a week to a day.""The solution is very lightweight, easy to configure, simple to manage, and robust since it launched."

More Red Hat AMQ Pros →

"The solution is not available on-premises so that rules out any customers looking for the messaging solution on-premises.""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.""I do not think that this solution is easy to use and the documentation of this solution has a lot of problems and can be improved in the next release. Most of the time, the images in the document are from older versions.""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 →

"There are some aspects of the monitoring that could be improved on. There is a tool that is somewhat connected to Kafka called Service Registry. This is a product by Red Hat that I would like to see integrated more tightly.""This product needs better visualization capabilities in general.""The turnaround of adopting new versions of underlying technologies sometimes is too slow.""There is improvement needed to keep the support libraries updated."

    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.

    To respond to business demands quickly and efficiently, you need a way to integrate the applications and data spread across your enterprise. Red Hat JBoss A-MQ—based on the Apache ActiveMQ open source project—is a flexible, high-performance messaging platform that delivers information reliably, enabling real-time integration and connecting the Internet of Things (IoT).
