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

TIBCO Enterprise Message Service

If you need a robust, extensible, reliable Enterprise Service Bus, with "Enterprise" being the key word here, TIBCO [Enterprise Message Service] will be able to fulfill every expectation.As proof of concept, or ad-hoc implementations, it might not be as well suited due to the infrastructure required.

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.

TIBCO Enterprise Message Service

  • 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

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.

TIBCO Enterprise Message Service

  • A bit of lag time between data sync and the data reaching the server for some of our field sites.
  • It still seems like a niche product for me with little community support. I didn't know about it before working for a company that deployed it.
  • Certain functionality is too complex to setup as compared to other products on the market.

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

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.

TIBCO Enterprise Message Service

TIBCO Enterprise Message Service acts as a barebone service in our environment. Some applications use TIBCO Rendezvous, some EMS. In this way it was possible to evaluate the differences and I saw that EMS was more robust and open to different programming languages. In particular the integration with java was a good point.

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

TIBCO Enterprise Message Service

  • It promotes the event-driven a-synchronized architecture, boosting the service-oriented design change by decoupling the data generator and the data consumer.
  • Applications can be easily "attached" to the data flow to quickly roll out the business added values without having to risk the changes of existing applications or components.
