Hey, thanks for the message. In the specific example, the transfer services would all hold their own internal cache of the team data. So if they shared a queue, once one service had picked up the new queue message the other 3 would never see it.

I don't think that would be the 'best' way to do it n production, I was just providing an example.

I hadn't really looked at Kinesis until recently, but yes I think Kinesis would be a much better provider for this model. It suppors a much more typical pub/sub setup.
