What is a data stream, how it is different from message stream
Lots of times, message stream and data stream are used synonymously. A data stream is usually little packets of data formatted in some way. They might be very small sensor readings of a single value or they could be larger chunks of data–in the case of Kinesis, up to 1MB is size. You can think of these as messages too. I guess Kinesis Data Stream sounds better than Kinesis Message Stream.
