Amazon SNS

It is well suited for generic push notification requirements. It can be quickly created and modified to best suit your application at any given moment. However for any notification service that needs to be highly customizable for a specific deployment should be implemented through a competing or custom built service run on company servers

TIBCO Rendezvous

TIBCO Rendezvous is a fast and reliable mode of communication, although they are already outdated by TIBCO FTL, which is even more faster and reliable than it's predecessor. They are more suitable for communication between the TIBCO products as all the TIBCO suite of products support the TIBCO Rendezvous. They are more widely used by banks and stock ticker applications to broadcast the ticker information.Most of the applications support Java JMS mode easily and out of the box than the TIBCO Rendezvous. Hence the TIBCO software themselves have their own version of the JMS server called Tibco EMS ( Tibco Enterprise messaging service).

Pros

  • Super simple setup and deployment. You can have a new service set up within minutes and in a serverless environment as well
  • Well documented and incredibly easy to use. There are available APIs in almost every relevant language and are all well documented by AWS. Getting any team up to date on their new Notification architecture shouldn't take longer than a day.
  • Being managed by AWS themselves makes the service highly available in every possible way. Your SNS deployment is almost guaranteed to never go down without you ever lifting a finger to make it so.

  • Tibco Rendezvous is used across multiple networks, to reliably transmit data between vast geography. Banks and Stock exchanges across the world communicate with each other using TIBCO Rendezvous.
  • TIBCO Rendezvous is faster and works well between the TIBCO applications. The default mode of communications between the TIBCO products is TIBCO Rendezvous. For example, TIBCO products like TIBCO BusinessWorks and TIBCO Administrator communicate with each other via TIBCO Hawk to monitor the health of all the engines and applications hosted by TIBCO products.
  • Rendezvous is the only mode of communication between the TIBCO suite of products. Although this is slowly getting replaced by TIBCO FTL, the newer generation of the TIBCO Rendezvous.
  • Rendezvous does not require a central server like Java JMS. Rendezvous uses Rendezvous daemon process running in each application to communicate with each other.

Cons

  • The AWS website UI could use some definite improvement. The website itself is very clunky and hard to navigate and always seems to have the wrong information in the wrong places. It is a monstrous task trying to make a website as complicated as AWS look simple and easy to navigate but even with some minor improvements it would become much more user and beginner friendly.
  • Troubleshooting can be very difficult when encountering an issue with SNS and often many AWS services. By having all of your infrastructure in the cloud, it makes troubleshooting networking problems quite complicated. On top of this, aws provides little return information when a message fails to send, leaving a lot of guesswork to be done on your part to fix the issue.

  • TIBCO Rendezvous is not recognized very well by other software vendors as much as Java "JMS" is recognized. Hence they are no supported out-of-box by all the software vendors.
  • Although Tibco Rendezvous does not require a central server to host all the communication, they need Tibco Rendezvous daemon process running in the application to be able to send and receive a Rendezvous message. Which means all the applications need a software license to communicate over the Tibco Rendezvous.
  • Comparing to Java JMS which an open source product, TIBCO Rendezvous needs a software license for communicating with each other.

Not likely to renew or buy the license as they are using the TIBCO EMS as the primary mode of communication.

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

Messaging is a very old concept offered by many software vendors, Although Tibco Rendezvous is very well recognized non-open source solution.In my opinion Tibco JMS is mostly used in all the applications than the IBM MQ and mule software -

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

  • All a non-TIBCO based applications need to use the TIBCO Rendezvous APIs and reprogrammed to communicate with other application using the Tibco Rendezvous.
  • All applications and enterprises need to have an enterprise license to communicate with each other.
  • TIBCO offers their Rendezvous APIs in various programming languages. Hence any application can use these APIs to start using the Tibco Rendezvous. Although most application prefers not to as TIBCO Rendezvous is TIBCO 's closely guarded recipe.
