Amazon SQS vs Redis: What are the differences?
Developers describe Amazon SQS as "Fully managed message queuing service". Transmit any volume of data, at any level of throughput, without losing messages or requiring other services to be always available. With SQS, you can offload the administrative burden of operating and scaling a highly available messaging cluster, while paying a low price for only what you use. On the other hand, Redis is detailed as "An in-memory database that persists on disk". Redis is an open source, BSD licensed, advanced key-value store. It is often referred to as a data structure server since keys can contain strings, hashes, lists, sets and sorted sets.
Amazon SQS and Redis are primarily classified as "Message Queue" and "In-Memory Databases" tools respectively.
"Easy to use, reliable" is the primary reason why developers consider Amazon SQS over the competitors, whereas "Performance" was stated as the key factor in picking Redis.
Redis is an open source tool with 37.1K GitHub stars and 14.3K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Redis's open source repository on GitHub.
According to the StackShare community, Redis has a broader approval, being mentioned in 3239 company stacks & 1732 developers stacks; compared to Amazon SQS, which is listed in 381 company stacks and 101 developer stacks.
