Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS) FIFO (First-In, First-Out) queues are now available in 9 additional AWS regions.

The additional regions are: 

  • Asia Pacific (Mumbai, Seoul, Singapore)
  • Canada (Central)
  • EU (Frankfurt, London, Paris)
  • South America (Sao Paulo)
  • US West (N. California)

Including previously announced regions, Asia Pacific (Sydney, Tokyo), EU (Ireland), US West (Oregon), and US East (N. Virginia, Ohio), Amazon SQS FIFO queues are now available in 15 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 Amazon SQS standard queues, which offer best-effort ordering and at-least-once delivery. FIFO queues have 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. To learn more about SQS and FIFO queues:
