AWS provides a suite of services that are quickly becoming the backbone for many enterprise application architectures. One such service, AWS SQS, is an event-driven architecture that can be used to provide an asynchronous workflow between components in your system. This blog post will discuss how SQS and lambda work together to build a queueing system with SQS as the queue and Lambda as worker processes that respond to events from SQS.
What is Event-Driven Architecture?
Let’s first discuss event-driven architecture. Event-driven architectures are a way of building an application that relies on asynchronous messaging between components to provide workflows and data flows. These systems decouple parts of the system from each other allowing for more flexible development and scaling of the entire service.
