Amazon SNS is a fast, flexible, fully managed pub-sub messaging service. Use it as a cloud-based mobile app notification service to send push notifications, email, and SMS messages; or as an enterprise-messaging infrastructure.

  • Mobile App & User Notification Service


    Send updates, promos, or news to individual users, a segment of users or all of your users with a single using Direct Messaging or SNS Topics.


    Broadcast messages to many devices with a single Publish request.


    Push notifications to Apple, Google, Fire OS, and Windows devices and to Android devices in China with Baidu Cloud Push. You can also send push notifications to MacOS desktops and Voice over IP (VoIP) apps on iOS devices. Send emails via SNS or send SMS messages to U.S. mobile numbers.


    Turn insights from Amazon Mobile Analytics into custom push notifications or use Amazon Cognito to associate device tokens with user identities.


    "Using AWS has enabled us to build a scalable mobile application backend and send millions of notifications reliably"

    - Or Arbel, Cofounder & CEO, Yo

  • Cloud-Based Enterprise Pub-Sub Messaging


    Use pub-sub messaging semantics such as Topics, Publish, and Subscribe to send messages between your de-coupled cloud-based apps.


    Get started with 3 API calls and avoid building or hosting a complex messaging fabric and costly license or maintenance fees.


    Send individual messages to destinations or fan-out messages to large groups using Topics.


    Use SNS to deliver messages from AWS services such as CloudWatch, S3, Lambda, Glacier, CloudTrail, and SES to other AWS services such as SQS, Lambda, or HTTP endpoints.


    Use AWS Lambda to selectively route messages to a subset of destinations or manipulate message content before delivery.


    With SNS Topics your effective cost of sending identical messages to multiple recipients is lower than sending individual messages to each recipient.


    “The AWS Cloud drives a lot of business benefits for Kellogg.”

    - Stover McIlwain, Senior Director of IT Infrastructure Engineering
