Amazon SNS

Amazon SNS is great for at least two use-cases: building cheap, non-emergency alerts, and decoupling services with pub/sub messaging. SNS is great for creating email notifications in minutes for alerts that are not worthy of PagerDuty. Subscribing multiple AWS Lambda functions to a topic is a great way to decouple features.

TIBCO Enterprise Message Service

Tibco EMS is well suited in situations where the application can benefit from asynchronous processing. It is not suite for synchronous request/response. It is not suited for permanent storage, as all messages in the JMS topic/queue are supposed to be transitory in nature.

Pros

  • The AWS Lambda SNS trigger is great. Subscribing multiple Lambda functions to an SNS topic is a nice way to decouple features.
  • SNS is fully-managed. Our team is too small to manage our own pub/sub infrastructure.
  • Subscribing email endpoints to SNS topics and integrating topics with CloudWatch alerts is very easy; we create more non-emergency notifications than we would without SNS.

  • Tibco EMS performs very well, and it meets our stringent performance requirements for corporate messaging backbone.
  • Tibco EMS scales well, and this is another of our stringent requirements.
  • Tibco provides good support for the EMS product, and continues to improve it. This is important as we don't want to use something that does not keep up with the changes in the technology landscape.

Cons

  • The SNS Console has not been updated in a long time, and it was confusing to begin with.
  • Testing systems that use SNS end-to-end can be tricky; LocalStack somewhat ameliorates this problem.
  • Debugging is difficult.

  • A good browser based UI.
  • Effective handling of messages if hard disk is corrupted for data storage.
  • Good support communicating with other protocols.

Alternatives Considered

SNS is much more customizable compared to SES and allows for many more delivery methods. While it is better for email-based notification services, not being able to send notifications via SMS limits your app functionality considerably. Being able to switch message delivery types is an invaluable tool for any application deployment

TIBCO Rendezvous is the underlying technology that makes messaging exchange super fast.

Return on Investment

  • Positive from the cost savings of the service itself
  • Positive from the labor savings from both the ease of setup and learning curve of the programmers
