Ready for the real environment experience?
Amazon Simple Queue Service (Amazon SQS) offers fast, reliable and scalable queues for storing messages. By using Amazon SQS, you can move data between distributed components of your applications that perform different tasks without losing messages or requiring each component to be always available. A queue is a temporary repository for messages that are awaiting processing.
During this introductory Lab, you will learn how to create an SQS queue, send queue messages and retrieve and delete them.
Upon completion of this Lab you will be able to:
- Create SQS queues
- Send SQS messages
- Retrieve and delete SQS messages using the AWS Management Console
- Work with SQS messages using the AWS CLI
You should be familiar with:
- AWS Management Console and AWS CLI familiarity are helpful but not required
