Amazon Simple Queue Service (Amazon SQS. is a distributed message-queuing service designed to make it easier to build distributed applications, also known as microservices. Amazon SQS can be compared to a post office. a producer puts a message in a mailbox and a consumer gets a message from a mailbox. Each message is a queue item. Each queue has a maximum number of messages that can be stored. These messages are called "messages" or "messages". The service guarantees that messages will stay in the queue until they are consumed, even during periods of high activity.
Gravity Forms is the most popular WordPress form builder on the market today, used by thousands of customers to create custom forms to cplect user data from their sites. Gravity Forms is an excellent option for anyone using WordPress to power their site, including web designers and developers, bloggers, small business owners and non-profits. Although Gravity Forms is primarily used for contact forms, it has all the features you need to build any type of form. You can use Gravity Forms with any type of WordPress site – from a simple blog to a large corporate site. Gravity Forms includes drag-and-drop form design capability, inline conditional logic checks, submission import/export, PayPal payment support and Google reCAPTCHA integration.
Gravity Forms is an extremely powerful plugin for WordPress that allows you to create various types of forms and cplect information from visitors through your WordPress site. As Gravity Forms works with the WordPress database and the database only, we need to connect Gravity Forms with other systems we might want to send information to our users via email, SMS, Slack or whatever means we choose. This is where Amazon SQS comes in.
By integrating Amazon SQS with Gravity forms, we can achieve several things:
Increase the number of submissions we receive by increasing the load capacity of our systems by decoupling them from our website so we can scale horizontally. By using Amazon SQS as an intermediary between Gravity Forms and other systems we can guarantee that no matter how many visitors we have, we can handle all submissions and if we ever exceed our ability to handle submissions we just need to ask Amazon SQS to handle them instead. Increased redundancy – we can connect our Gravity Forms with multiple Amazon SQS queues and send different submissions to different queues or even spread them out across multiple servers or AWS regions. We can even use this approach as a backup spution in case one of our servers goes down. Automatic retries – if there's a problem submitting information from Gravity forms to Amazon SQS, we can configure Gravity forms to automatically resubmit the form after a set amount of time or keep trying indefinitely until submissions are successful. Automated workflows – the asynchronous nature of Amazon SQS means that we can connect it to other services such as SNS and CloudTrail allowing us to automatically trigger workflows based on certain events such as an email being sent, an SMS being sent etc. In this article I'll focus on the first point – increased capacity by using multiple queues and spreading out submissions across multiple queues.
Some benefits of using this approach include:
Easy scalability – If your website grows beyond your expectations then you just need to add more servers and create additional queues in each server to handle increased load. You don't have to worry about traffic spikes – if you have lots of visitors at one particular time then you just need to ask Amazon SQS to handle those submissions – no matter how many submissions you have you'll still only pay the flat rate for each message per month based on your chosen plan. Easy Disaster Recovery – If something happens to your primary servers then you can use your backup servers or migrate your site to another AWS location without interrupting service. You can also increase redundancy by using multiple backup servers or spreading your traffic across multiple AWS regions. If you're currently using only one server then it makes sense to consider setting up multiple queues depending on expected usage patterns. For example, during off hours you may want to automatically switch over some of the traffic to your backup server or move some traffic to another region or another AWS account (if you're using cross-account queues. Ease Up Your Database – Since you're only storing each submission once in the database it will reduce the stress on your database since you won't be loading the same information multiple times into your database tables for every submission. Even if you decide not to use Amazon SQS for all of your submissions you may still want to offload some of them so your database doesn't get loaded unnecessarily with duplicate data. Reduce Spam – Using Amazon SQS also reduces spam because now bots cannot directly access your system without first asking permission which means they cannot submit fake email addresses freely which is an issue many website owners face today since bots tend to flood their contact forms with junk email addresses that they harvested from other websites or forums etc. Scalable Pricing – You'll only pay for what you use which means if you're only sending 5 emails per day then the pricing is much more cost effective than maintaining an expensive VPS server or paying for dedicated email hosting where there are no limits on the number of emails you send per month or year. And if you find that you're sending more emails than you planned on you can always increase the number of queues later without having to change your pricing plan at all which means you won't have any surprises when it's time to renew your monthly bill.
By integrating Amazon SQS with Gravity forms, we have increased capacity by using multiple queues and spreading out submissions across multiple queues which increases redundancy, improves performance and reduces costs significantly compared to using just one queue along with many other benefits.
