Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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.""The libraries that connect and manage the queues are rich in features.""The most valuable feature of Amazon SQS is the interface.""There is no setup just some easy configuration required.""I am able to find out what's going on very easily."

"The most valuable features of Redis are its ease of use and speed. It does not have access to the disc and it is fast.""The in-memory data makes it fast."

More Redis Pros →

"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.""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.""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."

More Amazon SQS Cons →

"The development of clusters could improve. Additionally, it would be helpful if it was integrated with Amazon AWS or Google Cloud.""I would prefer it if there was more information available about Redis. That would make it easier for new beginners. Currently, there is a lack of resources."

    Top Answer:It was a classic caching use case. In my previous company, we were running MongoDB on the cloud, and we were running Redis for caching. We were just starting, so the data size was pretty small there.

    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.

    Redis Labs is the home of Redis, the world’s most popular in-memory database, and commercial provider of Redis Enterprise, which delivers superior performance, unmatched reliability, and the best TCO. Initially employed as a caching layer, Redis is now used by virtually every large enterprise, startup, and government organization to power use cases such as e-commerce, AI/ML, search, fraud detection, real-time inventory management, user session stores, and much more.
