  • TIBCO Enterprise Message Service
  • AWS IoT Core
  • Amazon CloudWatch
  • Azure Service Bus


  • Long polling: Long polling will reduce the overhead of the CPU and not require excessive dolls.
  • Visibility timeout: a period of time during which Amazon SOS prevents other consumers from receiving and processing the message. The default visibility timeout for a message is 30 seconds. The minimum is O seconds. The maximum is 12 hours
  • Delay queue: Delay queues let you postpone the delivery of new messages to a queue for a number of seconds. If you create a delay queue, any messages that you send to the queue remain invisible to consumers for the duration of the delay period Know FIFO vs Standard Queue
  • SQS is a fully managed message queuing service that enables you to decouple and scale micro-services, distributed systems, and Serverless applications
  • SNS: To receive subset of messages, subscriber can apply filter policy to topic subscription.
  • If use case has subscribed to email notification, go with SNS as opposed to SQS.
  • By default only the queue owner is allowed to use the queue. Configure SQS Queue Access Policy to provide access to other AWS accounts
