What I mean is, there doesn’t seem to be an option to execute a Lambda function from an SQS message…

Are you already using an SQS queue?

My point is, if you have your producer call Lambda:Invoke(Instead of SQS:SendMessage) with an invocation type of ‘Event’ then Lambda queues up your requests and invokes them async. If you don’t need any of the more advanced features of SQS then this is the same thing. I’m simply pointing it out because many seem to forget that when Lambda came out this was the only way it operated.
