Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS) First-in, First-out (FIFO) queues are now available in Asia Pacific (Tokyo) and Asia Pacific (Sydney) regions, in addition to existing availability in US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), and EU (Ireland) regions.

Amazon SQS is a fully managed message queuing service that makes it easy to decouple and scale microservices, distributed systems, and serverless applications. Amazon SQS FIFO queues complement the existing Amazon SQS standard queues, which offer best-effort ordering and at-least-once delivery. FIFO queues have essentially the same features as standard queues, but provide the added benefits of supporting ordering and exactly-once processing.

Amazon SQS FIFO queues are priced at $0.50 per million API requests, with the first 1 million monthly requests free. For more information, see Amazon SQS Pricing. Get started with Amazon SQS using the AWS Management Console or SDK of your choice, and just three simple commands.
