More Amazon SQS Pros →

The addition of more queues and more services can be managed very easily.""Some of the most valuable features are publish and subscribe, fanout, and queues."

More VMware RabbitMQ Pros →

"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.""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 user interface could be improved.""They should improve on the ability to scale your queues in a very simple and elegant way with the same power that they have would be great.""There are some security concerns that have been raised with this product.""If you're outside IP address range, the clustering no longer has all the features which is problematic."

    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.

    • RabbitMQ is the most popular open source message broker, with more than 35,000 production deployments world-wide. RabbitMQ is lightweight and easy to deploy on premises and in the cloud and runs on all major operating systems. It supports most developer platforms, multiple messaging protocols and can be deployed in distributed and federated configurations to meet high-scale, high-availability requirements.
