Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS) announces an increased quota for a high throughput mode for FIFO queues, allowing you to process up to 9,000 transactions per second, per API action in US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), Europe (Ireland), Europe (Frankfurt) regions. For Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), and Asia Pacific (Tokyo) regions, the throughput quota has been increased to 4,500 transactions per second, per API action. For all other regions where SQS is generally available today, the quota for high throughput mode quota has been increased to 2,400 transactions per second.
Amazon SQS is a fully managed message queuing service that enables you to decouple and scale microservices, distributed systems, and serverless applications. Amazon SQS offers two types of queues, standard and FIFO. FIFO queues process messages only once, in the exact order that they are sent. Now, customers using high throughput mode FIFO queues can send and receive messages at a higher rate.
The high throughput mode for FIFO queues is available in all commercial and AWS GovCloud (US) Regions where Amazon SQS is available. To learn more about Amazon SQS FIFO queues, see the Amazon SQS Developer Guide.
