Amazon Has Got a Winner in the Form of Simple Workflow Service

Cloud is the true implementation of Service Orientation


Amazon Web Services never fails to amaze me in their innovation and the pace at which they do it! While the competition is struggling to get the basic pieces of the puzzle right, AWS is marching ahead delivering what the enterprises really need. There is a pattern that’s clearly visible in the last few major announcements from AWS – they want to win the enterprise. Whether it is VPC, Direct Connect, IAM or the recent Storage Gateway, they are all squarely targeted at increasing the confidence of the enterprises to embrace the Cloud. Yesterday’s announcement of Simple Workflow Service is a huge step towards the same.

Cloud is the true implementation of Service Orientation. There may be some resistance and reluctance in adopting SOA in the traditional environments. But on the Cloud, there is no choice. The only way one can exploit the benefits of the Cloud is by implementing autonomous and independent components that are loosely coupled through asynchronous messaging. Applications architected based on these principles will deliver the best return on the Cloud investments. Amazon has been advocating this heavily by encouraging developers and architects to consume Simple Queue Service (SQS), Simple Notification Service (SNS), Elastic Load Balancer (ELB) and other related services. Building on the same theme, AWS now offers a robust orchestration engine on the Cloud called Simple Workflow Service (SWF) that will make it easy and affordable to build SOA based solutions. The key benefit of SWF is the integration of On-premise assets with the Cloud services. Without compromising on the security and compliance, enterprises can build complex workflows that span both on-premise line of business applications and the contemporary Cloud applications.
