Frequently Asked Questions

Amazon Kinesis Firehose is a managed AWS streaming service that enables developers to build and operate various kinds of data streams.

Difficulty can vary based on your existing tech stack and data streaming needs. Many users choose to simplify implementation by sending data to Amazon Kinesis Firehose through secure managed AWS streaming integration tools like RudderStack.

Pricing for Amazon Kinesis Firehose can vary depending on your use case and data volume. RudderStack offers transparent, volume-based event pricing. See RudderStack's pricing.

Amazon Kinesis Firehose allows you to load your streaming data into data lakes and other analytics services reliably and securely. You can capture, transform and route your streaming data to Amazon S3 buckets, generic HTTP endpoints, warehouses such as Redshift, or services such as Elasticsearch and Splunk. With Kinesis Firehose, you can batch, transform, and encrypt your data streams before loading them into a data lake or warehouse. Thus, you can minimize the storage space required for your data and add another layer of security to it.

Essentially, Kinesis Data Streams are low-latency streaming services that allow you to ingest data at scale. They are highly customizable and best-suited for developers who want to build custom applications that use streaming data for their use-cases. However, Kinesis streams require manual provisioning and scaling. Kinesis Firehose, on the other hand, loads data streams directly into AWS and other services such as Elasticsearch, Redshift, Splunk, etc. for processing. In this case, scaling and provisioning are handled automatically by Kinesis Firehose.

Simply put, the main difference between Amazon Kinesis and SQS is that while SQS is a FIFO (First In First Out) queue, Kinesis is a low-latency real-time streaming service that allows you to process data with minimum delay.
