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.

- Built in for quicker setup within AWS ecosystem.
- Trusted as you control the users and configuration via IAM and easy access controls.
- Can be sent to S3 simple storage or for long term storage if required.
- Can be used in many regions, same configs.
- 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.

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.

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.
I had more than 100k subscribers on my blog with another company but their paid plans were too expensive for a blog like mine. It has a very large audience base and most of the audience is from India. So I searched for various alternatives (at that time i think Truepush was not launched) and find some good one which had comparatively cheaper plan with good service but within a year my subscriber base grown to 5 times of what it was with a previous company. That plan too become very expensive as the earning was not same every month due to changes in google algorithms and various other reasons. However it was very important to help students so I started searching for other alternatives. After trying many push providers, I was not happy with any of them. Then I ended my search when I found Truepush. After testing, checking their easy to use dashboard, analytics, push delivery and other functions, it took me just 10 minutes to decide that I was moving my Job Alert blog to Truepush. However there were definitely some doubts and some fears too as I had approximately 500k subscribers at that time. After chatting with Ravi (Co Founder Truepush) I felt confident and moved my blog. Now after two months of use, I can definitely say that I made the right decision as I never had any issue. The team at Truepush is always available to help me if I have any doubt. Thanks a lot to the team at Truepush for providing such an amazing product.
