Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS) announces an increased quota for a high throughput mode for FIFO queues, allowing you to process up to 70,000 transactions per second per API action in US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), and Europe (Ireland) regions. 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.

Getting started with the high throughput mode for FIFO queues is easy. Simply navigate to the Amazon SQS console and enable the high throughput FIFO option for a new or existing FIFO queue. You can also enable it through the SQS API.

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.
