Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS) FIFO (First-In-First-Out) queues are now available in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) region, operated by Sinnet, Asia Pacific (Hong Kong), GovCloud (US-East), and GovCloud (US-West).

Including previously announced regions—Asia Pacific (Mumbai, Seoul, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo), Canada (Central), EU (Frankfurt, Ireland, London, Paris, Stockholm), South America (São Paulo), US West (N. California, Oregon), US East (N. Virginia, Ohio), and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD —Amazon SQS FIFO queues are now available in 21 regions.

Amazon SQS is a fully managed message queuing service that makes it easy to decouple and scale microservices, distributed systems, and serverless applications. Amazon SQS FIFO queues complement Amazon SQS standard queues, which offer best-effort ordering and at-least-once delivery. FIFO queues have the same features as standard queues, but provide the added benefits of supporting ordering and exactly-once processing.

Amazon SQS FIFO queues are priced at $0.50 per million API requests, with the first 1 million monthly requests free. For more information, see Amazon SQS Pricing.

Get started with Amazon SQS using the Amazon Web Services Management Console or the Amazon SDKs.
