Are there any plans to add support to Amazon’s Simple Queue Service (SQS) support to Hangfire? I see that there is now support for Azure Queues, which is probably similar.
If there isn’t a current plan, I could use Hangfire.Azure.QueueStorage as inspiration and build it. We use SQS for our queues since it’s less servers to maintain, and would love to plug that into HangFire.
I have no plans to implement it myself, but I always welcome community contributions. If you have plans to implement it, you’d better to look at MSMQ or RabbitMQ extensions – Azure queues does not support Hangfire 1.0 yet (there were some breaking changes).
But I’m curious whether your ASP.NET application uses Amazon as a production environment. Because otherwise external queue service may lead to additional processing latencies, especially if it is located far, far away from your SQL Server storage.
