Amazon SQS

If you are looking to build something that just requires a simple queue service (as the name implies) this is great for it. You might look elsewhere though if you get into more complicated needs. This is also very well suited if you are already using other services with AWS and intend to fully build whatever you are building in AWS. If you are looking for a mixed environment -- SQS is not for you

Google Cloud Pub/Sub

Google Cloud Pub/Sub is well suited in Google Compute Engine instances. Large sets of data can be distributed efficiently. It is based on topic, subscription, message concepts. So, an application can place an order on a topic and can be processed by groups of workers. Lots of processing and augmentation has to open before the data goes into Pub. If we want all of the augmentation to be done in BigQuery, then it is a big headache. In our present scenario, it is very time-consuming and needs improvement/tweaks.

Pros

Amazon SQS

  • It provides an always-available serverless queue for workflows or mission-critical processes.
  • Is extremely low cost and overall costs to our environments have been negligible.

Google Cloud Pub/Sub

  • Highly scalable.
  • Queues messages for up to 7 days if not acknowledged.

Cons

Amazon SQS

  • Almost all of the functionality has been covered by SQS, but they could improve the throughput time.
  • Also, they could provide built-in Cloud Watch, so that we can easily configure it without any external efforts.

  • I can't think of missing functionality, but added functionality is always nice!

Online blogging and documentation for SQS is great. There are many examples of implementing it and if you look hard enough, more than likely there are examples that meet the exact case with which you are working

The support is a big concern for Google Cloud Pub/Sub. It is not that mature when compared to many of its competitors like RabbitMQ. So, support has to be good. Mostly the support team would be on radio silence and constantly changing contacts which are not good signs considering the brand name.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon SQS

The most comparable products are RabbitMQ, and perhaps ActiveMQ. Until recently, AWS did not offer a managed ActiveMQ product. Running RabbitMQ will never be to my team's competitive advantage; we wanted a managed service.

Google Cloud Pub/Sub

We considered several messaging platforms including Kafka and Kinesis but both would have required more developer work and didn't integrate as nicely with our ecosystem. RabbitMQ is another messaging platform I've researched and prototyped on; it also would have required more developer time to implement as well but might be a good alternative for a hobbyist or a team looking for more customization.

Return on Investment

Amazon SQS

  • Positive impact - time allocation towards different features
  • Negative impact - too many resources dedicated towards debugging
  • Positive impact - less manual labor during testing
