(82 Ratings) Write Review

Amazon SNS uses cross availability zone message storage to provide high message durability. Running within Amazon’s proven network infrastructure and data centers, Amazon SNS topics are available whenever your applications need them. Amazon SNS leverages the proven AWS cloud to dynamically scale with your application. Amazon SNS reliably delivers messages to all supported AWS endpoints, such as Amazon SQS queues and AWS Lambda functions. Amazon SNS helps you simplify your pub/sub messaging architecture by offloading the message filtering logic from your subscriber systems, and message routing logic from your publisher systems.

(Reviewed on 28 November 2018) "Notify me notify my team notify all of the people"

What do you like best?

Quick and easy to integrate with other AWS services. I like how you have to subscribe to the service so that you or someone else can;t spam you with tons of notifications,

I wish there was a way to preview the subscriptions prior to submitting. I have accidentaly made one where it spammed me hundreds of times a minute and had to be quick to turn it off.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Be very cautious when setting up notifications, ensure you have the correct criteria so that you don't accidentally spam anyone.

Sending alerts for various items, I.E. cloudwatch hardware status and billing alerts

(Reviewed on 26 November 2018) "The best way to Connect Services"

What do you like best?

The ease of use to connect multiple service together and run mulitiple instances at once.The ease of use when you are able to connect multiple services together when using this provides a great way to handle events.

What do you dislike?

There are limitations when it comes to the way the data is presented, especially when it comes to email. It would be good if we could easily apply formatting or dynamic behavior without using external code.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Running reports, and policy issues.

What do you like best?

La rapidez con la que los usuarios reciben los avisos. Gran posibilidad de adaptación del servicio a tus necesidades. Muy fiable y estable.

What do you dislike?

No poder enviar una misma notificacion a varios usuarios a la vez, o se envían de uno en uno o lo envias a un topic. En el caso de iPhone suelen deshabilitarse de forma aleatoria las subscripciones, de forma puntual. Que no integra aún notificaciones a la web.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Usen SNS, es cómodo, sencillo y funciona muy bien

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Anteriormente usabamos Xtify pero no era estable y solía fallar constantemente. La gran mayoría de notificaciones no llegaban a los dispositivos.
