    Hi Denzil,

    Thank you for posting here.

    Yes, Denzil, it has something to do with the cost. Switching from Kinesis to SQS might involve trade-offs (as you said, additional time to reconfigure, business impact, etc.) and considerations, but it could potentially lead to cost savings and simpler architecture for the given scenario.

    Additionally, as elaborated in the explanation, “Kinesis Data Streams is a real-time data streaming service that requires the provisioning of shards. Amazon SQS is a cheaper option because you only pay for what you use. Since there is no requirement for real-time processing in the scenario given, replacing Kinesis Data Streams with Amazon SQS would save more costs.”

    I hope this answers your question. If you have any more inquiries, don’t hesitate to ask.
