Amazon SQS vs. Other AWS Services

Amazon AWS vs. Amazon Kinesis Streams

Amazon SQS is a hosted queue for storing messages as they travel between distributed application components and helps you decouple these components. SQS provides common middleware constructs such as dead-letter queues and poison-pill management. It also provides a generic web services API and can be accessed by the AWS SDK. SQS supports both standard and FIFO queues.
