Likelihood to Recommend

Amazon SNS

Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS) is well suited for applications built on event driven architecture. It makes it easy to log and track events in real time from the source to the destination. The permissions should be configured properly in order to use SNS else while implementing you can come across Access Denied errors. The dashboards are difficult to maintain to track the utilization.

Plivo

  • For API integration and triggers, Plivo is very helpful for sending alerts, and easy integration is the key. Highly recommend for the developers who are looking for Voice APIs and services to be integrated for sending information.
  • Plivo is secure and provides easy access, and documentation is also good. Delivery reports are also easily accessible.

Cons

Amazon SNS

  • At times you receive access denied errors which are annoying.
  • Rarely do you receive internal failure errors where you can't access the information. It is rare but it does happen.
  • You are required to add an MWS Authentication Token every so often. I wish it would pull that information automatically for you so you don't have to go searching for it.

Plivo

  • Providing white label services easily
  • Pricing is a concern

Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS) is a fairly simple tool to use, with the only complexity coming around creating new endpoints. Sending messages and transferring them to clients is an "it just works" out of the box solution, and on that basis, I have to say this tool does its job well, and easily.

Amazon Simple Notification Sevices (SNS) support depends on your usage pattern and definitely on your support plan as an enterprise with AWS. Before reaching out to support you should read their documentation, as they have mentioned almost all the common issues and their solutions there. However, for specific issues, they generally respond in 1-2 business days.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon SNS

Amazon Simple Notification Service and PagerDuty have been used by various organizations. Amazon SNS is ideal if you're within an AWS environment. PagerDuty is used when we are working outside of Amazon Web Services. Though PagerDuty is more expensive than Amazon SNS they do have better reporting capabilities in specific areas.

Plivo

  • Yes, it is good to use Plivo, as per the pricing and ease of integration. Twilio has a difficult pattern for business developers and could be understood only by a developer.
  • Plivo has proper delivery reports as compared to Twilio. Using Plivo has helped us grow efficiently and in a good manner.
