How it works
Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS) lets you send, store, and receive messages between software components at any volume, without losing messages or requiring other services to be available.
Increase application reliability and scale
Amazon SQS provides a simple and reliable way for customers to decouple and connect components (microservices) together using queues.
Decouple microservices and process event-driven applications
Separate frontend from backend systems, such as in a banking application. Customers immediately get a response, but the bill payments are processed in the background.
Ensure work is completed cost-effectively and on time
Place work in a single queue where multiple workers in an autoscale group scale up and down based on workload and latency requirements.
Maintain message ordering with deduplication
Process messages at high scale while maintaining the message order, allowing you to deduplicate messages.
