Queues - Amazon MQ
- Managed Apache ActiveMQ
- 💡 For lift & shift migrations:
- Traditional applications running from on-premises may use open protocols such as MQTT, AMQP, STOMP
- Instead of re-engineering the application to use SQS and SNS, we can use Amazon MQ
- It supports MQTT, AMQP, STOMP, Openwire, WSS, NMS, and WebSocket protocols
- Amazon MQ doesn’t scale as much as SQS / SNS
- Have to provision it
- Broker’s are deployed into e.g.
- Amazon MQ runs on a dedicated machine, can run in HA with failover
- Both queue feature (SQS) and topic features (SNS)
- Both pull (SQS, Kinesis) and push based (SNS) messaging.
- Broker types
- Single-instance broker: In single AZ
- Active/standby broker: In two AZ’s with automatic failover
- Network and security:
- You deploy into VPC and subnet(s)
- You need to allow access from security groups to reach the protocols
- You can make it publicly accessible outside VPC
- You can set maintenance window and allow minor version updates.
