I am confused as to in which situation should i use Amazon SNS and when to use Amazon SQS. And most of the times both are coupled. So what is the exact difference between Amazon SNS and Amazon SQS?

  • SNS is a distributed publish-subscribe system and the messages are pushed to subscribers as and when they are sent by publishers to SNS
  • SQS is a distributed queuing system and the messages are NOT pushed to receivers. Receivers have to poll SQS to receive messages
  • Messages can't be received by multiple receivers at the same time
