Overall Satisfaction with Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS)

SQS service is under use at the company level, to handle the different application-level requirements. We mostly use it to decouple different level of modules so that we can provide an efficient solution to the end user.
  • Provides very good support for asynchronous processes.
  • Hosted in the cloud, which supports HIPPA complaints.
  • Options for a FIFO and Standard queue, so anyone can choose on the base of their requirements.
  • Has an add-on functionality of configurable parameters, like Delivery Delay, Default Visibility Timeout, Message Retention Period, Receive Message Wait Time, etc.
  • 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.
  • Under the AWS Echo system, it provides great operating power to the application.
  • The cost is much less for messages, and it also supports a multi-user option.
  • Not for us, but for a larger organization, low throughput might become an issue for a standard queue type.
The reason for the choice is due to maintenance needs and HIPPA compliance, as well as the great options under the AWS ecosystem, with very useful configurable parameters.
We needed an application where we could communicate between asynchronous modules, and we needed a reliable solution where we could upload data under the HIPPA compliance, and Amazon SQS is the best fit.
