Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS. is a cloud computing service launched by the Amazon Web Services (AWS. on April 15, 2006. It is a web service that provides message queuing capabilities to different applications and devices. It allows the queueing of messages for consumption by other applications or devices. It is a highly reliable and scalable spution to enable heavy workloads in distributed environments. It supports synchronous as well as asynchronous communication. The queues are persistent and make sure messages are not lost even if the destination application isn’t active. SQS handles millions of messages every day from millions of customers including Twitter, Netflix, Intuit, and Reddit.
The integration of Xero and Amazon SQS can be done by using AWS Lambda function with the help of Amazon SQS input stream. This will help in sending the transaction data from Xero to an Amazon SQS queue. The benefit of this integration is that it will allow us to process data directly on the Amazon SQS queue without any third party integration or slow batch processing. The data will be processed on a per minute basis via the Amazon SQS output stream into the Xero application using Lambda function. This will reduce the time taken to process thousands of transactions.
Amazon SQS also helps in reducing network latency issues because it uses a pull model which pulls data from Xero and pushes it to Xero via Lambda function based on the number of records that are stored in Amazon SQS. This approach can increase performance and reduce any data loss issues due to network latency issues that might occur when using the traditional push model. It reduces operational costs because it makes use of fewer database servers. This will also result in reducing space and storage demand because there will be no intermediate tables needed to hpd data during the process, unlike the traditional way where data is saved in different tables only to be reloaded into a production database at the end of the batch processing.
The benefits of integration of Xero and Amazon SQS include:
In conclusion, integration of Xero and Amazon SQS has many benefits such as reducing time needed for data processing from hours down to minutes along with reduction in bandwidth cost and elimination of infrastructure costs. This method also eliminates potential data loss issues that might occur with traditional methods due to network latency issues which makes it more secure than traditional methods as well as saving money over time as it reduces operational costs by eliminating dedicated infrastructure such as database servers etc., while scaling up or down without any commitments.
