Cloud Queues Terminology


A message is a task, a notification, or any meaningful data that gets posted to the queue. A message exists until it is deleted by a recipient or automatically by the system based on a TTL (time-to-live) value.


A queue holds messages. Ideally, a queue is created per work type. For example, if you want to compress files, you would create a queue dedicated to this job. Any application that reads from this queue would only compress files.
