Amazon SNS

It is best suited for sending notifications based on events in the AWS realm. It can be used to alert the developers in case of undesirable activity as well as be used as a medium for sending notifications to production applications

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TIBCO Rendezvous is a fast and reliable mode of communication, although they are already outdated by TIBCO FTL, which is even more faster and reliable than it's predecessor.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).

TIBCO Rendezvous

  • 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

Amazon SNS

  • 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.

TIBCO Rendezvous

  • 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.

TIBCO Rendezvous

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

Alternatives Considered

Amazon SNS

As I mentioned previously, I wish we had gone with a different service such as a Mixpanel or OneSignal as they are reputable in the space and are known for their strong support and documentation. AWS SNS was the way to go for us at the time we chose it due to the fact that we were getting into using AWS Microservices and felt it would be best to stay the course.

TIBCO Rendezvous

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

Amazon SNS

  • The ability to trigger AWS Lambda functions when messages are published to topics is a great pattern. It allows us to build features that are inexpensive to run and maintain.
  • Our developers are more likely to create notifications for non-emergency alerts because SNS makes it so easy to send emails for CloudWatch alarms. This helps us to be mindful of problems that may require attention but are not worth waking anyone up at night.
  • Some teammates have experimented with SNS for push notifications; they were disappointed by the lack of features and difficulty in debugging.

TIBCO Rendezvous

  • 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.
